Bad Moon Rising
Part of the Japanese bath experience isn’t just the deep dimensions of the tub but the proximity of a nearby window that you can throw open to the elements while having a searingly hot soak. ‘Tsuki-mi no mado’ or ‘Moon watching window’ I recall it being called; a view to meditate on at the end of an overworked day. There’s more than the moon visible from the window of Vienna architect Oliver Steinbauer’s design for a home in Winzendorf-Muthmannsdorf in Austria. With a Kaldewei Conoduo bathtub to slip into and the whiteness to slip away in, he leaves us a sliver of green to dream in.
