As a surfer it is always nice to step off the beach after a long surf session and shower away the sand and salt water from the day. One company, Sustainable + Functional + Art, is taking this shower experience a step further by designing an outdoor shower made from recycled surfboards, allowing for a sustainable and atheistically enhancing addition to any surfer’s living space.

This artistic shower sculpture comes with a simple plug and spray feature, making it easy to hook-up to a garden hose and rise off. It is designed in a mosaic style and can be made to include recycled surfboard, rock, shells, starfish, sea glass, river rock, and mirror.

According to the founders of Bamboo Reflections, Will and Jane Fowler, they explore art that is not just aesthetically pleasing but functional and eco-conscious. Their combined experience in art, interior design and residential/corporate construction is what ultimately inspired them in their endeavor. They pride themselves in making it a priority to seek out alternative material choices, and are drawn to the simplistic, sculptural lines and varied shapes surfboards offer.

Along with their sustainable creations, Will and Jane also donate a portion of their commission to various charitable causes that they believe in and support. This in turn creates a full circle of eco-consciousness in their business. For more information on Sustainable + Functional + Art, check out their website.

    I don’t surf and I still think this is brilliant!
