It’s Time for a Bath

Preview Our Book on Beautiful Bathrooms around the World

Posted by Gestalten—09/2017

“The bathroom is a special area, a ‘twilight zone’,” says esteemed architect Piero Lissoni in the preface of our new book Take a Bath. He continues: “When we get up early in the morning we need a space that exudes a certain calm and intimacy, an aura that gives us a sense of being cherished. The bathroom is the ultimate space for the senses”. 

Indeed, it’s a room that requires a sense of tranquility, be it over the course of a relaxing soak in the tub or a quick touch up between errands. Take a Bath (or Baden Baden for the German edition) dives deep into the oasis of every home—the private restoration station where we start each morning and power down each night. Browse images from the book below in this exclusive sneak peek, or order a copy for yourself from our webshop. As Lissoni notes, the bathroom is “the most functinoally and aesthetically complex room in an apartment or house”, so don’t sleep on this tome of inspiration.
