The days are gradually getting shorter and the Indian summer is just around the corner. Whereas summer is a time for active leisure pursuits, autumn is a good opportunity to withdraw to the cosy atmosphere of one’s own four walls again. Relaxation and regeneration are the order of the day. Wellness enthusiasts, for instance, are often big fans of floating, an activity familiar from hotels and thermal spas. Anyone who wants to let his worries float away at home can now enjoy this particularly relaxing experience in his own bathroom: the Bassino bathtub from Kaldewei is so big that you can actually float in the water.
Floating – the art of drifting
Floating allows the bather to float on the surface of the densely concentrated salt water as if he were weightless. This treatment in pleasantly warm water ensures calm, regular breathing and relaxes the muscles, which is said to result in a unique sense of deep relaxation. The most important prerequisite, however, is a totally outstretched position – which is possible with the Bassino tub from Kaldewei. Even the straight lines of its inner contours communicate lightness and a generous amount of space. Thanks to its two-by-one-metre size, the tub allows most users to stretch out fully and move freely. In order to achieve the optimal floating effect, the tub comes with a cushion that is placed under the head as a neck support.
Like all Kaldewei’s enamelled shower trays and tubs, Bassino is made of 3.5 mm-thick steel enamel. As he floats in the salty water in the comfort of his own home, the user can thus enjoy the moment to the full without worrying about the salt damaging the surface of the bath.
Convenience and relaxed comfort in the bathroom
After drying off, the best way to savour the relaxing effects of floating to the full is to make yourself comfortable and rest. Kaldewei has come up with the ideal solution in the form of its Relax Lounger. It consists of three hand-sewn leather-look upholstered elements that can either be used in combination or individually. They are connected with one another by means of press studs, creating a generous surface that extends across the entire tub and is attached to its corners. With an additional cushion, the lounger thus becomes a dedicated rest zone that can enhance the retreat-like atmosphere of the bathroom.
The elements of the Relax Lounger can also be used individually, for instance as a seat when the user is engaged in grooming activities. Placed across the middle of the tub like a bridge, it ensures books, magazines and drinks are within easy reach while the user enjoys his bath. The Relax Lounger is available in four different colours, thus allowing it to be adapted to the individual design of the bathroom: anthracite, beige, crimson and chocolate.
