Rapsel Ofuro by Matteo Thun

Posted in Interior//Design by ferilli on June 8, 2010

The traditional wooden ‘Ofurò’ baths of Japan were less vessels to get clean in, more places to for quiet contemplation and a nice floaty soak. Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez have created a new bathtub with an European form: ‘Ofurò’. ‚Ofurò’s puristic form allows complete emersion; material and composition convey calm and warmth. ‚Ofurò’ captures all the principles of a harmonious and relaxing bath. Made of larch wood – for a sauna-scented experience – it is dried in several work steps and cut, shaped and joined together in a special procedure. The clean design is pared down to the essentials and harmoniously emerges out of the wood grain. ‚Ofurò’ is haptic, visual and comfortable: one of a kind.
