Bathtime Couldn't Be More Convenient With This Innovative Tub

Its unique design could put a rela soak in reach — anytime, anywhere.

A bath enthusiast without a bathtub is like a burger without a bun — that is to say: incomplete.

It's a pain point you've likely encountered checking into a hotel room where a shower was the only option. And, if experts are right, it's a problem that could persist with many hotels moving toward shower-only bathroom designs.

German designer Carina Deuschl has dreamed up a solution: The XTEND, a collapsible bathtub crafted out of super light carbon fiber that folds flat when not in use.

The pop-up tub is also equipped with a pipe, so users can hook it up to a water source, such as a hotel shower, according to the Daily Mail, while a padded, machine-washable fabric inlay keeps the water inside. (Living room soak, anyone?)

While Deuschl has yet to announce any plans to mass produce the product, it did recently win the Red Dot Award for Best Design Concept, so we've got our bath-loving fingers crossed that someone will make this portable tub a reality soon.
