AS COLD AS…: THE ICE BED AND BATH BY WHO CARES!? DESIGN

Inspired by the form and shape of ice, Vienna based WhoCares!? Design have developed two very unique ideas – the ICE BED and the ICE BATH.

ICE BED

Completely made from DuPont TM Corian, the Ice Bed integrates a queen size bed with a side board as well as other pockets of storage  into one unique sculptural form.

Aside from its intriguing aesthetic, what is possibly its most prominent feature is the LED lighting that wraps around the bed, starting from the foot of the bed to the “peak” of its mountainous form. The LED lighting switches seamlessly between colours to create a mood lighting for sorts and offer an attractive ambiance to the space.

Functional surfaces and lots of external and internal storage are next on the list of features. The alcove created by the form of the bed, allows for the user to be able sit at what could be used as part dresser, part desk, with shelving and more within convenient reach.

ICE BATH

Similar to the Ice Bed in form and styling, the Ice Bath features a floating bath also crafted from corian. As opposed to your traditional tap or faucet,the Ice bath fills from the bottom so your don’t hear when the bath is running. The bathroom also features an angular sink floating along one length of the wall and sloping seamlessly from the vanity.

The bath also features Indirect LED lighting which illuminates the space with an array of colour to cater to the user’s mood.
