a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Healing Japanese Hinoki tub joins Indigenous' Bathroom Collection`. Handcrafted from sustainable hinoki timber, the deep-sided tub features a rectangular contemporary design. It is available in a range of sizes - with both straight and sloped ends - and creates a ‘zen-like' style statement in both indoor and outdoor bathing areas.
Lemon-scented and lightly toned, hinoki is an incredibly water resistant timber that has a durable straight grain. Oil for the hinoki tree is used in aroma-therapy preparations and its healing qualities are widely acknowledged. Using the timber to create a bath tub or ‘Ofuro' harnesses these benefits and brings a spa-like sense of wellbeing to the bathroom.
Each Japanese Hinoki bath tub has a completely smooth, water-tight finish and is available in the following sizes: 1220mm (l), 762mm (w), 650mm (h); 1524mm, 762mm, 650mm and 1828mm, 915mm, 650mm.
