Who doesn’t dream of snow capped mountains, blue skies and a big orange bathtub right in the middle! Okay, maybe not one of the most conventional images out there, but as someone said, “normal is boring!”

DutchTub, wood fired hot tub. Designed by Floris Schoonderbeek.

Meet the DutchTub! The name may not conjure the most decadent images, however it does claim to contribute to the “worldwide outdoor-bathing culture” which makes it worthwhile in our books. This novel tub has been constructed from natural wood, which along with the innovative construction ensures durability and comfort.

After filling the tub with water, a fire can be started in the attached basket to kick start the heating process. The hot water starts to rise in the spiral, which automatically starts pouring in through the spiral, and begins circulating from the bottom to the top. The temperature is adjustable and to warm 700 liters of cold water the tub takes around two and a half hours.

As explained by the creators, “Dutchtub is more than a product, it’s a way of engaging in your environment (whereever you are) and upgrading your possibilities within public or private space.”

The DutchTub may not be exactly a speed demon when it comes to matter of heating, however the whole point is the experience and not just the act!
