Roca announced the winning project of the 3rd edition of the International Contest "Jump the Gap," chosen from 382 project presentations.
Breathing Bathtub is an innovative concept that turns bathing into a healthier experience for the users and is significantly more efficient in terms of energy and water consumption.
The bathtub is lined with a revolutionary material similar to a sponge. The material molds itself to the shape of the users, guaranteeing maximum comfort and as a consequence uses less than half the water used normally.
As its name suggests, the Breathing Bathtub can breathe as the sponge material filters the water through a process similar to the osmosis of plants meaning that any impurity in the water becomes trapped in the lower layer of the lining, guaranteeing clean water and an important reduction in consumption. Another surprising characteristic of the bathtub's lining is the product feature indicating when the water should be renewed.
