Stone Shower

The rock-filled wire cages called gabion—typically used as retaining walls—have been the darlings of landscape architects and interior designers for several seasons, owing to their eco-friendly image and compelling materiality. I've seen them used as enclosure for outdoor showers, but this freestanding application is a first for me. In these still-steamy, waning days of summer, it's a cool idea. gartdeco.ch

  1. The benefit of including stone into a composition vs. the disadvantage of seeing the stones pinned in by wire mesh--it doesn't create a sum gain. I find it tragic, like a caged wild animal.
    Will the stones eventually fuse together, while, at the same time, the mesh rusts into oblivion ?
