Shell (Bathtub) by Nina Mair
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Bathroom Furniture and Sanitary Ware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The design of SHELL wooden bath series was inspired by japanese bathing culture and the long tradition of making bathtubs out of wood.
Creativity
The Shell bathtub is carved from a solid block of aromatic walnut. With extremely high precision and a great love of detail, this concept is at the edge of what is possible – a wood bathtub cannot be made any more delicate. The exacting production process includes precise positioning of every corner and curve, and the ergonomic optimization of every radius and incline. The sophisticated drain and overflow lie flush with the surface of the bathtub, disappearing into its form.
Design Challenges
Nina Mair did not encounter any design challenges while designing the award winning Shell Bathtub.
Production Technology
The Shell bathtub is made of genuine, hand-polished and oiled walnut. It is carved from a solid block of aromatic walnut using a precision CNC milling machine. The final form is refined, polished and oiled by hand many more times.
