Elemental Spa is the third of Dornbracht’s ritual bathrooms and my absolute favorite, where water is the focus of the space. The design is modern, cubic and clear with materials that react directly or indirectly to their contact with water. Everything is born and evolves in the presence of water. So does this collection. As you are going through your restorative rituals, you naturally leave a gentle imprint on the materials; copper coated walls and floor slabs, marble and wood.
I like how the raw materials change over time giving you that naturally worn look, how it emphasizes the trails of the water. The warm colors of the copper are actually quite refreshing from the cooler bathrooms. The hardware is kept to a bare minimum without interfering but celebrating the flow of water.
