The key concept influencing shower design right now is the idea of wellbeing. "It is no longer just about the quick shower," says Karine Lim of Rogerseller. "It's about relieving the stresses of the day with a rainforest-like effect on your body, which rejuvenates, stimulates and revives your tired senses." A unique product is Methven's 'Maia', which uses a vitamin C cartridge slotted into the back of the showerhead to reduce the chlorine present in water for a softer showering experience.
Many new showerheads utilise air-infused water to create either a gentle rain shower or a powerful massage jet, such as Kohler's 'WaterTile', whose water nozzles can be programmed to offer a rejuvenating body massage as well as a soothing mist spray, while 'Katalyst' showerheads use induction technology to deliver a downpour of large, heavy droplets. With natural weather patterns duplicated so ingeniously, you'll feel like you're singing in the rain! Kohler 'WaterTile' 54-nozzle showerhead, 'Bodysprays' massage spray, and 'Digital Showering' unit, all Tradelink.
