A segment is emerging in the outdoor design sector and it is one most of us can only observe from the outside. It is the ultra luxurious, limited edition or even bespoke market. As in fashion, all the rest of us can however hope these designs will gradually trickle down and major retailers will end up offering us attractive alternatives. A great example of these are designs by Splinter Works.

Above is a new spa design called Vessel that elevates off the ground similar to a hammock.

Their Shoot water feature is a welcome water feature as outdoor baths/spas are seriously lagging behind in the design revolution!

The Shoot is a carbon fiber and silver leaf designed for a happy few: the edition is limited to three! Like a slide, Shoot arcs over a pool of water and dives back down toward the surface.

They also have brought a desirable outdoor bar, cleverly called Tipsy… Massively more people can own this one as the edition is of eight pieces! The design is made in carbon fiber with clear or pigmented lacquer.

Despite whether these designs are within your reach, outdoor sculptures, baths and bars are on the rise in residential outdoors. Adding something smaller and more modest will guarantee style without breaking the bank. Simply adding something unexpected makes a enormous change to an outdoor space.
