Harm Rensink‘s Urban Spa is an experimental space designed to give people in populated cities a space to unwind and relax. The project consists of a translucent plastic bubble that is filled with steam set alongside a changing room with all the amenities needed to enjoy a spa experience. Rensink set up his Urban Spa at the last Dutch Design Week, where visitors could reserve a spot at the end of each day during the festival.
Rensink also designed some cozy garments and accessories for pampering oneself. A fluffy bath rope was on hand for walking to the inflatable sauna after getting undressed at the changing room. Placed on a small low table were a few elements that made the experience sensory and tactile. A set of fluffy geometric sleepers, a hand towel for scrubbing the body and some drinking water were also part of the experience. Rensink also created some unique scrubbers by covering soaps with natural felt.
