For generations bathtubs held a boring rectangular shape. Thanks to the advent of acrylic thermoformed baths, more shapes have become available for consumers. Documented early plumbing systems for bathing go back as far as around 3300 BC. From hardened pottery to clawfoot tubs, people have experimented with different solutions to this sanitation problem for many centuries.
Today we’re able to enjoy bathtubs made from a variety of materials such as acrylic, fiberglass, wood, steel, cast iron, and etc. Not only do they serve functionally, but they also avail as stand-alone art fixtures for us to visually enjoy. The industrial designers behind these elegant tubs truly illustrate that bathtubs don’t have to be boring. They pushed their creativity to the max, and for that they deserve acknowledgment. Enjoy!
