Soaking in the great outdoors

’Tis the season for outdoor living and what better way to enjoy nature’s majesty than to be immersed in it while lounging in your own pool—or if you’re space-constrained, the Minipool, which was shown by Zuchetti.Kos at this year’s International Bath Exhibition, which ran concurrently with EuroCucina in Milan, Italy.

Part of an outdoor collection designed by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, the unit measures 2300 mm in diameter and 850 mm deep, has an overflowing rim and includes a circular bench that can seat up to six of your closest friends. Feel a little tense? No worries. Adjustable nozzles deliver a variety of massage programs, while a heating system ensures user comfort even after the days of summer have passed. Of course, there’s also underwater LED lighting for a little chromatherapy. The Minipool is available in freestanding and built-in models with a small ladder in metal or wood or a wooden footboard with a deck.

The Outdoor Collection also comprises an outdoor freestanding shower column, a sleek, no-nonsense design with a 300-mm-diameter rain head and a built-in rubber handshower for those harder-to-reach areas. It operates via a joystick mixer and can be specified with a shower tray, made from Canadian red cedarwood.

And finally, while this may not be new or part of the Outdoor Collection, the Faraway Pool adds instant luxury whether installed inside or out. At 4180 mm x 2350 mm x 1150 mm, it easily accommodates six people, offering them all the benefits of a whirlpool system and fiber-optics-based hydrotherapy, as well as heating for when Mother Nature begins to cool and summer becomes but a distant memory.
