Few home fixtures are as poetic as the Phytobalneum which demonstrates directly how its waste is put to worthwhile use. Alban le Henry's contraption invites you to step up and wash yourself, having full confidence that the liquid will end up nourishing the thriving garden built right into the unit.
The product is essentially a broad and shallow planter that's wide enough to accommodate a mat for a standing person and a perimeter of growing reeds, hyacinths and moss. Attached to it is a vertical pipe with a wooden bracket that holds a nozzled hose for one to use to freely bathe his body. Almost all of the water that misses the bather or falls to the platform will end up getting cooled and recycled through the Phytobalneum system in order to feed the greenery.
