Folding Shower Lets Everyone In The House Have Their Own Shower

This Folding Shower, which is a concept by French company Supiot that is currently looking for a manufacturer and a distributor, is a unique design that’s supposed to allow people living in small apartments to install a shower that doesn’t take up too much of their limited space. I’m a bit confused though, as even the smallest of apartments always have at least a shower since they already have a smaller footprint than a bathtub. And if your budget is so limited that you have to rent a place that doesn’t have a shower, something tells me you’re not going to be able to afford a renovation like this.

Anyways, I think Supiot has actually missed the mark when it comes to who they’re marketing this thing at. Small apartments with limited space? Nope. Single bathroom homes with multiple teenagers? Bingo! Just install a folding shower into every bedroom in the house and the morning battles over bathroom time will be a thing of the past. Sure, there’s the issue of running the requisite plumbing and drainage to every single room, but that’s nothing a few lengths of garden hose and some extra camouflaging rugs throughout the house can’t solve.

    Another concept that is easy to identify as such.
    First problem… drainage… the hinge is above the drain….water doesn't flow up.

  • Zotel

    look like an ikea perfect fit

    There’s the issue of running the requisite plumbing and drainage to every single room.

    Seems like a better fit for suburban first floor half baths. Easy access to plumbing and a small shower for when the down stairs den becomes a guest room.

    Could be a poolside shower for salt water pools. The water may drain into the base and empty into the drain when folded up. ? .

    I like the idea of a poolside shower, but my thought was that it would be great for those unfortunate times when an elderly relative comes to live with you. They can’t take stairs and you don’t have a full bathroom on the main floor. If you have a large powder room like I do, or a laundry room on the main floor, this would be a great way to convert either to a “full” bathroom.
