The most famous of modern bath-house designs is the bathtub bath.
The modernist design combines a flat surface with a circular shape.
The concept originated from the Italian architect Gianni Versace.
In the 1970s, Versace was asked to create a bathtub design that could be shared with the modern world.
The tubs are made of anodised aluminium, which makes them light and durable.
Modernist architects realised the potential of these designs and turned them into luxury products.
“Modernist architecture is very interesting, but in the same time, it has a deep, old heritage.
This was the case with the tub bath,” said Piers Coggan, an architectural historian and lecturer at University College London.”
The tub is not just a design for a bath.
It’s a metaphor for the way we see ourselves and our relationship with the earth and our bodies.”

They flocked to the new “Bath and Beyond” shops in Oxford Street, New York, in the early 1960s and ’70s.
The designers realised the tub was a beautiful place to visit.
“There was this sense of adventure in the tub.
It was an exotic place to spend time,” said Cogan.
“You could do this for free, and it was just lovely.
It was also a perfect place for a lot of people to spend the night.”
The design was inspired by a number of European countries, including Italy, France, Germany and Spain.
“The tubs were designed to be so big that they could be used for public bathing or private baths,” said Giorgia Marotti, a historian at the National Museums of Art in Rome.
“They are also perfect for being used for a romantic moment with a partner.”

“A bathtub is an essential part of contemporary art and design.
We have to keep an eye on how it’s being used in contemporary life,” said Marotti.
Modernism was born when the Italian architects Stefano Guglielmo and Giuliano Veronese began work on the idea of a modernist style in the late 19th century.
These two men were inspired by the art of the French designer Georges-Henri Lefebvre, and inspired by an American landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted.
Modernism was a style of architecture, and the two architects were keen to use the ideas of the Guglioses and Veroneses in their design of a new way of living.
In the late 1960s, they began to create the tub-bath concept.
The name “bather” comes from the Latin word for water, bathers, and meant a person who was immersed in the bath.
Pairs of tubs could be separated by a wall and each was a separate person.
“The water was the centrepiece of the design, so the tub could have a very special function,” said Mancini.
Mancini has researched the tub’s history.
“It’s important to understand what a bath is, because it’s a great place to be,” she said.
She added that there are no universal definitions of what a tub is, but “in terms of design, there are two things that are clear: the water inside, and its relationship to the bath.”
“For the designers, there is a clear and simple idea about what a bathroom is,” said Bogaero.
“What it’s about is the connection between the bath and the surroundings.
The idea is that the tub is the centre of a whole space.”
Maisie Williams, a lecturer at the University of Liverpool and author of Modernism: An Architectural History, said the tub has been around for centuries, but it is only now that modernists started to look at it.
Williams said the designers “thought that they were building a modernised bath, and that is where modernism is coming from”.
“The concept of a tub bath, then, was born in the ’70, and this was a time when the modernist movement was very much on the rise,” she explained.
