Pinched Porcelain Soakers

The Nuvist Charme Bathtub Softly Embraces the Bather

— July 29, 2011 — Art & Design
Between the warm water, the smell of soap and the gradual relaxation of your muscles, a bath should offer the experience of pure repose. Satisfying where most soakers fall short, however, the Nuvist Charme Bathtub provides a significantly more comfortable surface for the bather to embrace total tranquility.

Such is achieved through the fluid form of the glossy basin, not embodying a simple scoop, but incorporating buckled sides that serve to envelope a tired body and provide optimally placed armrests. Along these soft ledges, controls can be found that allow one to manage the pressure of the jacuzzi jets within the tub. The Nuvist Charme Bathtub hence creates both a soft and serene experience in the tangible and the visual sense.
Trend Themes
1. Fluid-form Bathtubs - The trend towards fluid-form bathtubs presents an opportunity for designers to create more comfortable and visually appealing bathing experiences.
2. Optimally Placed Armrests - Designing bathtubs with optimally placed armrests allows for enhanced comfort and relaxation, offering a disruptive innovation opportunity in the bathing industry.
3. Integrated Jacuzzi Controls - The integration of jacuzzi controls within bathtubs offers a convenient and customizable bathing experience, indicating a potential disruption in the bathroom fixtures market.
Industry Implications
1. Bathroom Fixtures - The bathroom fixtures industry can explore disruptive innovations by incorporating fluid-form designs, optimally placed armrests, and integrated jacuzzi controls into their products.
2. Interior Design - The trend towards fluid-form bathtubs and the incorporation of optimized features provides an opportunity for interior designers to create visually stunning and comfortable bathroom spaces.
3. Luxury Home Goods - In the luxury home goods industry, offering fluid-form bathtubs with optimally placed armrests and integrated jacuzzi controls can provide a unique and immersive bathing experience, leading to potential disruptive innovations.
