(mentor) De Fijter, E. (mentor) Molenbroek, J. (mentor) Faculty Industrial Design Engineering Department Design Engineering Date 2009-09-29 Abstract Today, showering is the most common bathing practice in Europe. It has the highest water consumption in a household (around 100 litres, for 8min shower). Unlike technological developments to improve eco-efficiency of existing products, this project introduces alternative ways (alternative to showering) of bathing that are less resource intensive as compared to the shower. Introducing such practices means to introduce a “New Bathing Culture”. Two rituals coined as SCRUB and SPLASH were developed for this new culture in a new context of the bathroom. Development of the rituals meant developing the products and interaction with them. The project was done for LIVING LAB and Sealskin.
