Take A Bath book by Gestalten

Competition: win a book documenting contemporary bathroom interiors

Dezeen has teamed up with publisher Gestalten to give five readers the chance to win a copy of a book exploring contemporary bathroom design in homes and hotels across the world.

Take A Bath book by Gestalten

Named Take A Bath, the book uses colour photography to capture design-focused bathrooms, as well as featuring interviews with designers and architecture studios.

The hardcover book is comprised of over 250 pages, and divided into four chapters. Each one explores a different material –tile, stone, wood and metal – and how it can be uniquely applied in a bathroom setting.

Highlighted projects include a bathroom by designer Max Lamb that has been completely decked out in a colourful terrazzo-like print, and minimalist grey-toned bathroom by Danish practice Norm Architects.

There is also an art-deco home in Melbourne that has an outdoor bathtub, and a shower room in Milan thats been finished with lime terracotta shelving, lime green walls and blue resin floors.
