reHOUSE/BATH, 2004

reHOUSE is a research platform for sustainable and ethical design. reHOUSE/BATH is a new section of this platform, focusing on the bathroom, thought as a biotop where nature and mankind interact. The following objects have been designed for this project: BATH is a mobile bathing surface. To wash, the user has to sit on the bench that strides over the edge of the bathtub. BATH’s evacuation system is connected to a series of plants that drink the water used for the washing. The user must adapt her/his water consumption to the number of plants around her/him. The grown up plants create thereby an organic screen. 
reVAP is a ceramic water collector. The amount of water you can use for washing depends on the plants’ ability to evaporate it. reNET is a connection piece allowing multiple combinations between BATH and reVAP
reSIZE: the washing is made with a bucket and a natural sponge to force the user to consume a minimum of water. No more bath or shower, just rinsing. Every bucket containing over five litres is perforated so that it can only contain this amount of water. reMAT is a natural felt mat. It pumps humidity after the washing and gives it back during the day.
