shares

In the era of the Smart Home, the bathroom should not be left out. Here are some gadgets that will give your bath space a smart and stylish upgrade without the need for a major overhaul.

Wonderboom speaker
Available at COURTS
Small but loud, the Wonderboom may be a lightweight but it packs big sounds with 360-degree audio performance. With a rating of IP67 which means it can be submerged in water for up to half an hour, it lets you bring your favourite tunes safety in the showers. What’s more, this Bluetooth-ready speaker enables music playback of up to 33 meters away from a compatible smart device.

AXOR Starck V washbasin mixer
Available at hansgrohe
There’s just something mesmerising about seeing water swirling upwards from a vortex and then elegantly cascading downwards to meet your touch – a poetic motion that truly elevates the utilitarian role of hand-washing. As the crystal glass spout is also open in design, the AXOR Starck V (the brand’s first transparent mixer) encourages users to appreciate water not just as a basic commodity, but as a precious resource.

Luminist basin
Available at TOTO
A washbasin that radiates a luminosity likened to that of the moon isn’t a sight you’d see every day. Far from run-of-the-mill, the Luminist basin possesses the translucent and delicate quality of glass. But it is far from fragile because it is constructed from a core material – epoxy resin – that is exceptional in durability and resistant to heat.

Flotation tub
Available at TOTO
TOTO revisits the basic definition of a bathtub by implementing the science behind how the human body works into the design of its flotation tub. Its Zero Dimension bathing pod is devised to ensure users reach the most ideal state of relaxation by keeping the body afloat and free from gravity – precisely like an astronaut’s resting posture in space. Dynamic water massages that target the lower back and feet encourage deeper relaxation, while water streams down from the pillow to further spoil you with a neck bath.

Moxie wireless speaker
Available at KOHLER
The Moxie delivers music and water at a go. Its wireless speaker fits snugly at the centre of a compatible shower fixture – either a showerhead or a rainhead – to provide you with entertainment as you bathe. When you’re done, simply remove the speaker pod from its dock. Now you can take it anywhere around the house with you.

Available at Space Furniture
The aesthetic appeal of the Kartell All Saints is enough excuse to welcome it into your space. Its pleated edge pattern – one of the piece’s standout feature – has the ability to refract light beautifully, further adding brilliance into the room. Here’s a tip: bring about a more dramatic effect by mounting a pendant or wall light near this piece.

Kartell Sound Rack storage by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba

Stack them up to create a mini cabinet that sits by the side of your vanity area, or lay them side-by-side to form a low storage unit. As the Sound Rack is a modular piece, you can personalise a configuration that works best for your needs.

Umbra Flex drain stop/hair catcher
Available at HipVan
Make constantly clogged drains a thing of the past with this simple but super nifty apparatus. Press the centre button whenever you’re showering to activate the hair catching function while allowing water to seep away. To use it as a drain stopper, push the upturned edges down. Maintenance is a cinch – all you need is to wipe or rinse with a gentle cleanser.
