SOAK Prototype

Metal & wood + outdoors + water + heat = fun and relaxtion

The SOAK is a two person, Japanese Ofuro inspired outdoor, wood or propane fired soaking tub. The SOAK features an aluminum body & end storage unit/shelf/seat, side accessed integrated stove, locally harvested Red Cedar seating and shelf, stainless steel stove pipe, aluminum perforated grate. We use the SOAK with mineral salts over the course of 2-3 days then release the water with a soaking hose onto garden beds.

Kez’s criteria for designing the SOAK was to be 2 person (less water), minimal in appearance, high quality materials, no chemicals and solid construction. She wanted it to be propane heated for ease of use as well as wood fired. After months of research, designing, modelling, 3D fabrication drawings and many changes, Kez and Jeremy built a working prototype. Jeremy designed the snorkel stove portion. Her inspirations are a love of water and fire and constant desire for a hot bath.
