Duravit, 2006

EOOS wants to create objects that can be brought by their users into several conditions. Objects that thus “have several lives.” This very goal appeared central to the design of Sundeck. For this reason: typically, bathtubs are not used daily. While they stand empty, they are not only a miserable sight, but they also offer little functionality.

Sundeck is different. Completely new usage variants result from its cover made up of hinged segments: in the spread condition, the hand-sewn cover serves as a couch for relaxing, or the tub becomes the temporary hiding place for dirty laundry. Folded up, the cushion serves as a headrest for bathing.
