Showering takes up half of our daily water consumption, and the amount of energy required to heat the water is extremely high. Using mist could offer a more considered approach to bathing at home, by using a fraction of the water and heat whilst creating a pleasurable sensorial experience. Mist nozzles break down water into tiny droplets; this multiplies their surface area, meaning that less water is needed to soak something. The structure is built close around the body for optimal thermal comfort, and the mesh confines and catches the mist. Taking a five-minute mist bath would use 7.5 litres of water, while the average shower takes 50 litres.
