Bathing Theory

location | Berlin, Germany

bathroom space | 15m2 frequency | twice a day

In the morning, Anna takes a quick shower before leaving the house. In the evening, she fills the bathtub with hot water and soaks in it while brushing her hair or reading a book.
For Anna, who lives in Berlin, the bathroom is a place where she can refresh herself—it is a place that rhythms her day


Sometimes, Anna lights aroma candles and takes a longer bath than usual. Winters in Berlin are particularly long and cold, with an average temperature of -2°C.
Taking a bath to warm up slowly from the inside not only relieves the fatigue of the day, but also helps you get a good night’s sleep.
Unfortunately, there is no window in her bathroom, which makes it easy for moisture to accumulate—so the dehumidifier is always running. It also keeps bath mats and bathrobes dry and comfortable.


One of Anna’s habits is “repetitive bathing.” Multiple baths in a row, to rest and detoxify her body.
It’s a lot of time spent in hot water. In between baths, Anna makes freshly squeezed juice to rehydrate herself. During this time, she turns on the circulator for ventilation.


The ambient air of the room feels refreshing after a warm bath. Anna wraps herself in a bath towel or a bathrobe and walks around the house in the morning light. She usually goes into the kitchen, slices up a watermelon, and adds some mint to her fresh juice.


In Berlin, it is not common to hang laundry outside, and drying clothes indoors is standard. A dehumidifier with four wheels for easy mobility, and a circulator with a sterilizing effect can be used together in the living room, to efficiently dry clothes and prevent smell from indoors drying.

Anna is the type of person who reads multiple books at once. Today’s book is The Island of Missing Trees by Elif Shafak, a Turkish-British author. Anna prefers to read this book at home, rather than carrying it with her on the road.

Love at First Sight

With this green cutting board, it was love at first sight. Anna saw it at a restaurant in town where she was having dinner with a friend.
She wanted it so badly that she convinced the owner of the restaurant to give it to her.


Berlin Apartment with Small Balcony

Because it is not usual to hang laundry outdoors, many apartments in Berlin have relatively small balconies. But opening the window to change the air is also a good idea after taking a bath.

Movable Dehumidifier

The ROOT 7100 dehumidifier is a compressor type dehumidifier that can be used in humid rooms for people like Anna: people who frequently use the bathroom and do not like humidity, people who cannot dry laundry on balconies (just like in Berlin), people who dry their clothes indoors to prevent pollen and yellow sand. In addition to its powerful dehumidification capability, it has a total of three different functions, including a clothes drying mode, a disinfection mode, and a deodorization mode.
The unit also comes with handles and wheels, making it easy to move between the bathroom and the living room, for example.

Antibacterial Circulator

This circulator not only has the power to blow air, but also enables space sterilization by incorporating a catalytic filter and an ozone generation unit. Unlike fans, this item can be used throughout all seasons, because it is designed for efficient air circulation.
It can be used to prevent mould in bathrooms which have no windows and are prone to moisture accumulation. When used in parallel with a dehumidifier, it can shorten drying time for laundry indoors and promote deodorizing.
