Beyond Luxury: The Nahho Flotation Tub
- May 22, 2012
New York—Luxury is an adverb that means different things to different people. Many luxury residential developments have the same quality finishes as average condominium projects. That is not necessarily a bad thing, it is just how asset class works. Resident turnover calls for finishes that sacrifice quality for durability.
But if you are looking for luxury touches that take your community above and beyond the ‘Class A’ competition, you are going to have to put in some truly top of the line fixtures. There is no such thing as over the top when it comes to true luxury, and there is no better place to splurge than the bathroom.
The Nahho tub from Duravit is so spacious that it is dubbed a ‘floatation tub’—the name ‘Nahho’ is actually derived from the Old High German word for dug-out canoe. Duravit’s EOOS design group built this tub to achieve the highest possible state of relaxation. Nahho features a special neck rest that cradles the user and keeps their body floating above water. The neck rest is even adjustable to allow the bather to slide down further into the tub, where they can enjoy the music of their choice.
Yes, what ultra-luxe tub would be complete without a Bluetooth connected sound source. The built in sound module lets the bather select the track and sound volume, which is transmitted via structure-borne sound converters—thus the music is present both above and below water. An indirect lighting source and waterfall tap add the final touches to what is sure to be a ‘wow-factor’ for even the most discerning luxury renter.
No, the Nahho is definitely not for every apartment project. But as the renter base continues to expand, more and more renters will be seeking to spend their money on above-condo quality features such as the Nahho floating tub.
