 The well documented history of pre-modern bathing testifies to its radical transformation during just the past 150 years. If bathing once meant an extended period of socializing, relaxation, enjoyment and semi-collective self-care, today it has been reduced to an isolated act of hygienic efficiency. MILLIØNS’ contribution to No-Thing reintroduces the lost social dimensions of bathing through a set of shared elements: a freestanding communal washbasin; a bathtub-in-the-round, with expansive flat surfaces to facilitate eating, drinking, and entertaining; and a series of large, thermally-radiant stone slabs for lounging and massage. Together the furniture set reimagines contemporary bathing as a set of extended daily rituals organized around a new, communal domestic landscape.
