These brazen bathtubs are the ultimate way to add a dose of style panache to your bathroom

The question of where art ends and design begins is one that is often posed in the interior landscape. That a thing can be one or the other is obvious enough, but in order for it to embody the two in as seamless a way as to blur the distinguishing line altogether, it must meet a very particular set of criteria. These intriguing baths fit the bill perfectly.

With their undulating and jutting structures, tonal and textural variations, these tubs meld art and design effortlessly and are re-staking their claim on the bathroom. From the Immersion bath with Scandinavian-inspired wooden accents by Neri & Hu, to the transparent sheen of Antonilupi’s Reflex bath (fashioned from the designer’s patented Cristalmood material), or Agape’s DR Bath, with its wavy, freestanding structure, these tubs are elevating bathtime from an occasional treat to a necessary daily ritual.
