Bathtub + Hammock = The Vessel Tub (12pics)

The Vessel Tub by Splinter Works takes what we know of a traditional bathtub and throws it out the window. The ultra-modern design resembles more of a relaxing backyard hammock than just another bathroom fixture... 

-check out 12 more pics below:

By the looks of it, I'm sure it won't fit in most people's homes in size or style... either way, it is cool to see how the design of a bathtub can be pushed beyond what we usually expect.
The Vessel is also available in red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver...
Vessel is made from carbon fibre which is utilised for its inherent strength and ability to be formed into complex curves, furthermore the weave of the fabric references the cloth of a typical hammock. Beneath the layers of carbon fibre lies a foam core, which insulates the tub, meaning the bath stays hot for considerably longer than normal. 
At 2.7-meters long, Vessel is longer than a regular bathtub, leaving plenty of room to share the experience. Custom sizes are available but it is also designed so that it can be trimmed up to 20-cm to allow for flexible installation.
The Vessel makes for a pretty cool photo... I'm curious to see how this slick-tub would look like with a wet floor, towel bar, step stool, shelf with soap, shampoo, ect. scattered about....
