Memories of growing up in the tropics, washing the sand and salt off behind a zinc sheet bring to life feelings of freshness, warmth, openness and freedom. The tactile quality of those moments, turning the old faucet and grabbing the hose while standing on a mix of stones, dirt and grass are thankfully hard to forget.
The outdoor shower provides an opportunity to use all kinds of materials, to loose control and let nature take over. They also become an inspiration for the way we design our bathrooms, so that our experience can be as rich and pleasant as all those times we washed outdoors.
