PAIOVA 5 | Bathtub
Asymmetric whirlpool bathtub
Comfort is the driving force behind the unusual design of the Paiova bathtub: its trapezoidal shape offers space for two people to lie side by side. Bathtub panelling in American Walnut (real wood veneer). It’s even more comfortable with the optional neckrest. The step that matches the bathtub panelling in American Cherry (real wood veneer) makes it easier to get in and out. Practical companion: the spacious mobile storage unit. The optional handle on the rim of the bathtub serves as an additional entry support.
It's usually a bath's design that determines whether one bathes in a sitting position or while reclining and relaxing. Yet the needs of our bodies are dynamic, and they can vary in accordance with psychological and physical well-being. Duravit’s Paiova 5 bathtub by EOOS surmounts structural restrictions with a concept that focuses solely on individual comfort. With two different backrest slopes, Paiova 5 offers the choice between an ergonomic sitting position and an especially flat reclining position – for bathing with someone else or relaxing alone.
The design of Paiova 5 is the result of a symbiosis between a corner bathtub and a freestanding bathtub. EOOS developed the new geometric form by taking a wall-hugging version and rotating it out into the room. The result of this ingenious transformation is a sculpture that succeeds in transferring the ergonomics of the bath's interior to a pentagonal exterior. The inclined surfaces of the bath's frontal contours compose a three-dimensional volume that opens up towards the room and the user.
Paiova 5's meticulous details ensure extraordinary comfort. As a result, both of the backrests can be equipped with a whirl system. The bath is particularly luxurious with the new Combi-L whirl system. The pleasantly flat jets swivel their massaging water streams up and down the muscles along the back. At 580 mm in height, the side of the bath is slightly lower than the usual 600 mm.
The narrow bathtub rim offers convenient support.
