Kohler's Stillness BathTub Inspiration: Japanese 'Forest Bathing'

Kohler's Stillness bathtub was inspired by the Japanese "forest bathing", also known as "Shinrin-yoku". The full-spectrum lights that are emitted along the basem and the fog from across the tub's surface with the aroma from essential oils all add up to a modern-day "forest bathing" feel. This Japanese method allows people to enjoy nature to relax and improve one's mental state and well-being.

The fully-loaded 'Infinity Experience' model of the Stillness bathtub allows water to fill up from the bottom of the bathtub. Afterwards, the water overflows into the cypress wood moat. As a result, the surface of the bathtub is covered in fog which creates a relaxing soundscape. In addition, the full-spectrum lighting adds up to the mood. According to Kohler, the device "immerses the bather in a feeling of deep relaxation."
