Bluetooth Bathtub Turns Soaping Up Into An Immersive Concert

Kaldewei's Sound Wave system turns your tub into an oversized speaker.

There is a subtle difference between listening to music in the bath, and listening to music with the bath. A new Sound Wave system from Kaldewei transforms your bath into a sound box that delivers high-quality sound and lets you (literally) submerge yourself in your favorite songs. You can also feel the vibration of the sound waves moving through the water as you relax, and control the bath audio system with any Bluetooth-enabled device.

“With people leading such busy lifestyles it’s important to have time to relax and reflect upon the day, and where better place to do this than in the bathroom,” said Angela Ortmann-Torbett, sales director for West Europe, at Kaldewei. “Our new Sound Wave system was designed with this in mind, so people can choose a playlist which fits their mood.”

The Sound Wave system costs £587 (£951) and can be “retro-fitted” to any existing of Kaldewei’s 3.5mm steel enamel bath tubs. It’s currently only available at John Lewis’ flagship Oxford Street shop, but the chances are good that it will be available through other outlets before too long.

Sound Wave is just one of many interesting installations at the “Fitted Studio,” which is John Lewis’ latest display at its Oxford Street store. The 6,500 sq ft studio designs and fits kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and personalized wine cellars, and includes 55 different displays which cater to the full spectrum of prices.
