Shower Anywhere with Cove by Oborain

Debuting at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, Cove is a new outdoor shower by Oborain, makers of Fjord, the original pre-fab outdoor shower. Inspired by traditional beach houses from the Eastern seaboard, Cove is constructed of cedar clapboard. The cedar will change color as it ages, turning a sophisticated gray. With a stainless steel frame and shower deck in ipê or ash, Cove will weather well.

Shower Anywhere with Cove by Oborain

Handcrafted at Oborain’s shop in Western Massachusetts, Cove comes in various sizes. Solo is perfect for one, while Duo is ideal for two. Piccolo, with its lighter frame, works well for areas with limited space. Outfit Cove with either the Croma Green Showerpipe from Hansgrohe or the Citterio Thermostatic Showerpipe from Axor. To complement Cove, use Obostone decking tiles, which are made using scrap wood from manufacturing Oborain showers.

About the Manufacturer: Oborain was founded by Jim Lobley and Kirsten Oxboel. Lobley came up with the concept for a temporary outdoor shower in 2011 at his home in the woods in Western Massachusetts. He sketched the idea on the back of a napkin for Oxboel, and together they launched the Oborain outdoor shower range in summer 2012. All Oborain products are sanded, cut, polished, welded, drilled, and assembled 
by hand in Western Massachusetts.
