Power shower

A peek at top end shower plinths

It’s a shame that most of the really posh places that architects get commissioned to design never get publicised due to client sensitivities, so it’s nice to get a glimpse of German firm MWE’s Austin Powers-like shower plinths. Big enough to swing a Mini-me in, its curved glass doors have been fitted, claims the firm, with teutonically efficient sliding mechanisms on engineered rails, which means that there should be nothing standing in the way of a shower and any megalomaniac desire for world domination. The plinth also comes with stainless steel magnetic caps on the fixing screws, discreetly hiding them away and considerately lessening the cleaning struggle for your legions of bonded slaves. Like you care.
