We’ve seen modular bedrooms and lounges pop-up on rooftops and other surprising places - but did you know that pop-up bathrooms are the next big thing? “Bathroom Bubble” is a transparent inflatable igloo that comes complete with a lounge chair, a tub, and a sink. Designed by the Association of the German Sanitation Industry and Messe Frankfort, the Bathroom Bubble can be inflated and used just about anywhere.
The Bathroom Bubble is part of a traveling exhibition called Pop Up My Bathroom, which explores the concept of the modern bathroom through the eyes of top designers. Bathroom Bubble offers all the relaxation of a luxury bathroom – except for the toilet. The bubble was inspired by a survey in which participants were asked to list qualities of their dream bathroom. The consensus was that most survey takers wanted a room with a view that had access to a garden or a terrace.
Bathroom Bubble does just that by giving users a – 360 degree – view. The dream bathroom is cozy and warm on the inside like a cocoon, and it can pop up just about anywhere. Users can set it up on a roof to recline in bubbles while watching the sunset, or pop it up along a stream or in a forest to get closer to nature while soaking in the tub.
If you want to experience the escape yourself, the pop up Bathroom Bubble will be on display at the ISH Fair in Frankfurt from March 12-16, 2013.
