Everyone has heard about their high-tech toilets but the Japanese can be very demanding when it comes to other bathroom devices. Take the Miyabi Wooden Shower Head, for instance: who would have thought that a simple shower head, easy to assemble and fitting most household shower hoses, could be a work of art? Japanese designers and craftsmen have created something that you'll be almost ashamed to put in your bathroom. There's a reason it comes in a paulownia wooden box like those used for fine pottery!
Everything on the Miyabi Wooden Shower Head screams "attention to detail". From the elegant ("miyabi" means "elegance") hand-shaped curve, which is both extremely ergonomic while also evoking the image of a kimono-clad figure, to its fine (0.4mm/0.01") holes that make the water come out with a high pressure yet soft enough so as not to harm your skin, this is something made to be truly appreciated. The Japanese don't really differentiate between crafts and art, and this shower head shows you why!
