Prototypes, Bendable Shower Wand Removable Heads, 2017

This is a Prototypes. It was designed by Michael Graves Architecture & Design. It is dated 2017. Its medium is polypropylene, tpe, synthetic fibers.

When we experience an injury, or as we age, our range of motion can decrease, making rigid bathing wands difficult to use. This flexible, bendable bathing wand facilitates the cleaning of hard to reach places. Its interchangeable heads come in three materials and textures and can be removed for handheld use without the wand.

This object was donated by Michael Graves. It is credited Gift of Michael Graves Design Group.
