The idea behind the Badkamer [Dutch for ‘bathroom’] is basically a sliding system that enables the user to make the most out of even the smallest bathroom space to create a fully functioning bathroom in a space no larger than 2m x 1m.
By sliding elements to the side a space for showering can be created, and by sliding the cabinets against each other, you prevent your appliances from getting wet. The shower features a large water surface and a 20cm-wide waterfall. Both the shower and the washbasin are operated with natural interaction fixtures. To set the volume you rotate it round it axe, and move it left or right for water temperature settings.
The toilet has a side cabinet which contains the paper-holder. Sliding the cabinet towards the toilet prevents it from getting wet while the shower is in use.
The compact and very much multi-function Ladybird is a freestanding Vanity and Bath unit, aimed at apartment and loft-style living where space is at a premium.
The vanity/lid of the Ladybird can be removed to reveal a tub within. The tub is a ‘sit’ style bath which is smaller in size than a typical bathtub and is an intimate space that holds less water. The unit also subtly integrates a step for ease of access into the bath, which retracts when not in use and opens out with a simple ‘push’ action when required.

I have taken the plunge and started my very own blog where I intend to post updates on my design spotting activities. The web is awash with fabulous design talent and a blog seems like the perfect place to keep track of all the innovate, inspirational, contemporary and cutting-edge design finds that I come across.
I was until recently employed as Staff Writer for a monthly B2B publication which focussed on a wide spectrum of design from architecture to interior design and product design. Working on Designer Magazine gave me the taste for all things design and since moving on from that job I desperately needed a place where I could channel my opinions of the latest happenings on the international design scene. And so here we are. Watch this space. Hopefully the things I will be posting up here will inspire you as much as they do me.
Hi I'm Stacey, a freelance design writer & blogger from the UK. Welcome to The Design Sheppard, my blog and online home where I round up the very best in interior design. Here you will find all the great interior design finds that have caught my eye. Please take a look around!
