Inspiration from artistic and extreme bathroom concepts can lead to bringing universal design concepts into the everday bathroom which will better meet the needs of all generations and lifestages. As seen in Wallpaper magazine Ron Arad changed the bathroom experience and developed a prototype bathtub/shower, for Italian manufacturers Teuco, which rotates to change its function. Such flexibility in bathroom fixtures is welcomed.
Pressalit has a market ready line of bathroom products that move linearly, both horizontally and vertically, for increased flexibility and access, as opposed to the circular movement of the Arad design, which is still only a prototype. Skip to 1:20 for a close-up of the use of the system tracks.
