Showers not only keep you clean; they rejuvenate you at the beginning of the day and can help you unwind at the end. Showering al fresco, for those who haven't tried it, is nothing short of bliss (as long as you are guaranteed a little bit of privacy, of course). However, this extravagance isn't available to most apartment dwellers in Hong Kong, for obvious reasons. Dornbracht may have found a solution. The firm's range of Rainsky showers is specifically designed to simulate sunlight and summer rainfall, meaning it is possible to shower inside while enjoying the sensations of the great outdoors. By dispersing light through the controlled water flow (to replicate different kinds of rainfall), the Rainsky experience closely matches that of open-air showering, or being caught in a warm, sunny patch of rain. For $140,000, this concept can be made a permanent fixture in your bathroom. Just bear in mind that the longer you spend in 'the rain', as enjoyable as it may be, the more prune-like you are likely to become. The Rainsky range is available from Colour Living, 333 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, tel: 2295 6263.
