Modeled after traditional hammocks, these freestanding bathtubs are made without wall attachments. Designed by Splinter Works studio, the 'Vessel Freestanding' bathroom concept is a freestanding bathtub that doesn't require traditional plumbing features.

The sleek black tub design looks like it could belong in the bathroom of a country club spa and features an exaggerated and curved shape. The Vessel Freestanding model also boasts a basin that looks like a smaller version of the tub.

The best part about this bathtub is that it can be placed wherever the designer or homeowner desires, rather than having to connect to a plumbing wall -- a requirement for most competing bathroom accessories that are available in today's market.
