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.

    As an alternate: bury 6 empty electrical conduits, cut to 18″ in the ground in an area ~5×8 feet. Place an outdoor lounge in the space. Insert bendable PVC pipes of ~12 feet into the conduits, then bend to meet in the center above your head. Wrap in transparent outdoor construction film. You have a wind free, solar heated, outdoor lounge for ~$50 USD.
