Showering is one of the greatest pleasures of life. The hot water. The steam. The ritual. The comforting fake-rain sounds. These designers get that. Here are the personal sprinkler systems that dreams are made of.
The Reclining Shower
The Dornbracht Horizontal Shower offers the ultimate “reclining shower experience” with six “water bars” and performing three “pre-programmed choreographies.” I did not know that choreographed water bars were something I could want, but if they are, then I do. I really do.
The Aquarium Shower
Cesana’s Plano Acquario is equipped with an in-shower aquarium, so you can shower with your fish. And really, does anyone know more about showering than fish? (No.)
The Bath-Shower Hybrid
A collaboration between architect/designer Ron Arad and Italian manufacturers Teuco, the Rotator is a shower that is also a bath. If the lip is on the top, it’s a shower. If the lip is on the bottom, surprise! It’s a bath.
The 18-Shower Head Shower
The SpaWorks Hydrotherapy cleanses your body and also your sole(s) with 18 shower heads, including one under your feet.
The High-Concept Shower
Hansgrohe’s Axor Starck is so elegant and minimal and sleek that you would be a fool not to install it in the middle of your living room.
The Steam Cabinet Shower
The Giant Egg Shower
Designer Arina Komarvo’s Roca Cocoon Shower Stall is like a luxury womb, except with hydro massagers and mood lighting.
The Conversational Shower
Duravit’s Multifunctional Shower features a pair of benches to facilitate easy and enjoyable mid-shower conversation, or mid-shower other things — sit, relax, soak it in, talk it out.
The Disco Shower
The Drops Lighted Shower by Cisal turns bathing into a party, with LED lights illuminating every shimmering droplet. It’s an escape from the world, or a dance club, depending on your perspective (and your color scheme).
The Anywhere Shower
The Pocket Shower may be the only shower that fits in your pocket. Fill it up, hang it from a tree, and enjoy seven minutes of glorious water streaming down your sunlit back.
The Au Naturale Shower
The Cascade Cedar Shower by Tradewinds is a rustic-chic shower experience that doesn’t even require a bathroom. Rustic-chic shower pool-side! Rustic-chic shower lakeside! The rustic-chic possibilities are endless.
