Home Of The Future- The Horizontal Shower And Other Unusual Home Items
Gayle Anderson was live in Santa Monica at Snyder Diamond to see the HORIZONTAL SHOWER by Dornbracht and the OpenSpace convertible shower by Duravit. With three showrooms in the Los Angeles area, Snyder Diamond has offered customers the latest in design innovation for your bathroom and kitchen for more than 50 years. Snyder Diamond showrooms have inspired customers with the latest styles, from traditional to contemporary to cutting edge and everything in between.
Designed by Dornbracht, the HORIZONTAL SHOWER expands the vertical showering experience thanks to its use of the Ambiance Tuning Technique, which allows you to shower while lying down. With the Ambience Tuning Technique, Dornbracht has created a new form of a shower experience. For the first time, various flow types can be combined with preprogrammed choreographies of water temperature and quantity to enrich individual bathing rituals. The HORIZONTAL SHOWER includes six WaterBars that are recessed in a wide-area shower field located above a recliner. The user can enjoy the HORIZONTAL SHOWER while lying on his or her stomach or back and the recliner surface itself is heatable.
With headquarters in Iserlohn, Aloys F. Dornbracht GmbH & Co. KG is a globally active family-run manufacturer of high-quality fittings and accessories for bathrooms and kitchens. For more information, visit their website.
For those with small bathrooms, a convertible shower is an aesthetic and space-saving alternative. The OpenSpace shower by Duravit has two large doors, which are made of 8 mm thick safety glass and are fitted into a chrome frame built into the wall. The doors are designed so that they can be lowered into the shower position and then lifted and folded into the frame to save space.
Founded in 1817, Duravit is a leading supplier of sanitary ceramics, bathroom furniture, whirlpool tubs, accessories, and wellness ideas. Duravit operates in 60 countries worldwide and has been honored with numerous national and international awards for its innovations in design and technology.
