Shower Anywhere with Oborain’s P.S. 122

The extent of my outdoor showering experience is a quick douse with a garden hose after a day of landscaping in the July heat. And that was quite refreshing, in fact, so I dare say the pleasures of au natural cleansing are exponentially increased with Oborain's P.S. 122-a portable outdoor shower handcrafted in Massachusetts and made of recycled and sustainable materials.

P.S. 122 Delights the Senses

A lovely, chic shower with a modern industrial vibe, P.S. 122 is constructed of Richlite (architectural panels made of recycled newsprint and resin) and sustainably-sourced teak farmed on reclaimed ranch land in Mexico. The shower also incorporates corrugated metal panels, providing a comely aesthetic counterpoint for the matte-black Richlite.

P.S. 122 also incorporates a sustainable ethos in packaging and delivery: the shower is flat-packed; it features rapid, hardware-free assembly; and it can be hooked into a humble garden hose (and stored over the winter if needed) or fully plumbed for permanent installations.

Options for P.S. 122 include doors and an Axor Citterio thermostatic showerpipe fixture.

P.S. 122's namesake is a non-profit arts organization in the East Village (housed in the old public school building): "Recognizing the important link between creativity, the arts, and innovation, Oborain is donating 5% of sales proceeds from this shower to PS122 in support of their work in bringing new ideas and voices into our cultural milieu."

About the Manufacturer: Oborain is one of the world's premier manufactures of outdoor showers. Creators of the world's first pre-fabricated outdoor shower, Oborain believes that showering outdoors is too great a pleasure to be missed: "our hope is that we can bring this idea to all landscapes and environments, transforming the mundane nature of one's daily routine into a blissful experience."
