The $19,000 Bathtub That’s Totally Worth It
Toto’s Flotation Tub has zero gravity therapy and helps achieve one of the most calming feelings ever
The Japanese company Toto, known for their high-end toilets has developed its first ever bathtub (that happens to cost $19,000). Otherwise known as the Flotation Tub, the luxurious bathtub was debuted at CES 2018. The cradle-shaped tub promises to provide users with ultimate relaxation. The bathtub, which is 50% larger than normal bathtubs also comes with a water massage system and adjustable pillow.
The Flotation Tub is designed to give you a space-like zero gravity feeling and uses a variety of integrated jets that help blow you up into the water and makes you feel as though you were floating on water. The reclining posture is supposed to be similar to that of astronauts in space. The pillow inside the tub also has an integrated faucet designed to bring water around your neck for relaxation and can be adjusted based on your height. The water massager targets particular muscles in order to help ease tension. The tub releases stress on your joints and leads to ultimate relaxation, which the company says stimulates creativity.
But with the hefty price tag, the Flotation Tub is in the same league as the $19,000 Concordia Xpress 6 Beverage System coffee maker, the $21,195 K1000HS Hybrid Fire Freestanding Grill with Side Burner and the $268,000 Goldmund Epilogue Full System speakers. Watch the video from Toto below to get an idea of how their Flotation Tub will more or less make you feel.
