TV Tub

Whether you are a guy, live with one or are designing for one, chances are that deep down, they care much more about the appearance of their bathroom than the dirt-factor might let on. Know a guy in need of an upgrade? This week we've fallen for OMC Design's uber-compact "manity", Karim Rashid's TV Tub combo for Saturn and Fap Ceramiche's Futura Collection tiles.

Karim Rashid’s tub is, of course, a handsome number. Made of Liquid Acrylic Resin in starkest white, it boasts a high-sided profile with a subtly sloping prow, giving it a distinctly nautical feel. The waterproof screen is artfully incorporated into the foot end, providing the perfect punctuation mark to your ritual of cleansing and relaxation.

Time will tell if the TV Tub gains entry into the residential market. I suspect this will have much to do with the price tag—and the state of our state, since such high luxury items tend to fall by the wayside during financial slowdowns. For the present, however, I predict the Saturn TV Tub will appear in high-end hotels and condos of every stripe. And you know what they say… as the Ritz goes, so goes the U.S.A…via 3 Rings
