design studio desnahemisfera has combined a bathtub and washbasin into the ‘symbiosis’ unit for kerrock by kolpa. merging the two bathroom fixtures into an ergonomic form creates a structure that is adapted to the human body. the necessary plumbing fixtures have been concealed out of sight into the shared base structure, allowing the shape of the mass to be the main focus. the technologically advanced product has integrated features, such as the ability to control both water temperature and pressure at the touch of a button, while built-in speakers enable one to play music from a mobile phone or device while enjoying a relaxing bath.
