Sanctuary

In this futuristic bathroom, the user can enjoy a fully immersive experience in which the images projected on the wall, the music and the scent fill the environment to create different emotional states during the shower.

The system uses the latest advances in technology, including a shower-head with integrated projectors and a control panel located on the wall and on the floor.
