Freestanding bathtubs are very popular, but they have a huge disadvantage: Zero storage space for required accessories like towels, bathrobes or bath supplements and for the stuff that is essential for wellness like candles, a glass of champagne or even a book or tablet. The market provides more or less stable trays that are supported on both sides of the bathtub, however, they are not very practical, not very stable and do not provide storage outside of the bathtub and therefore safely away from water. TUBLER is a foldable table system that comprises of a trestle that can be adapted to fit snug to most bathtub rims and is also adjustable in height. The table is pulled upwards and turns 90 degrees to form a board into the bathtub. This position allows for light objects to be placed on the board. With the telescopic insert the table will extend all the way across the bathtub and provide a stable bridge that can easily and safely carry heavier objects like bottles. The integrated and detachable bag allows to store any kind of items safely outside the tub but in easy reach. Ecofriendly bamboo, stainless steel and washable canvas make TUBLER an ecological choice for everyday use.
