DESIGN CONCEPT

Onyx stone is believed to soothe nervousness and stress. It therefore made perfect sense to create a bathtub from this impressive and powerful material. Each piece in the small collection were made with a great respect for the material; bringing all the layers and colours of the stone to life through an organic shape.

The monolith design is stressed by hiding the drain under the bottom stone.

Five bathtubs were made and they were all sold to private clients through Skyword Showroom in Shanghai.
