Vertebrae Vertical Bathroom

What is Vertebrae?

A unified and functional, vertical bathroom, with a clean and smooth form. Vertebrae fits to the floor and ceiling to reduce the space footprint and pipe-work and is for installation in a wet room environment.   The ergonomic and universal design is adaptable to suit various markets and applications.

The four monocoque units provide a strong and minimal aesthetic, manufactured from GRP in a RAL colour of your choice.  The sleek units rotate on a support and service structure, and are simple to install, whilst allowing for easy maintenance access.

The pioneering design and discreet engineering of the Vertebrae combine to create a unique offering, resulting in a paradigm shift for bathroom design.

Where is Vertebrae?

Vertebrae can be purchased directly from Design Odyssey and is available for viewing, via an appointment, at our contact address.

Throughout the development of the product, potential customers always insisted on seeing the product plumbed in and working in a true environment. Vertebrae has now been installed in a wet room in a newly built extension.  This enables customers to view it in a proper setting and to see the unit functioning.

For peace of mind, throughout the development and post installation, we have consulted with builders and plumbers.  This was to ensure everything is easily accessible for installation, connection and maintenance, and to adhere to best practice and regulations
