Inspired by the four elements of fire, water, air, and earth, this new, artistic home spa goes far beyond the typical spa design.  Both efficient and affordable, Elemental is made from materials and textures that fit the outdoors and its compact size and artisan shape allows for easy integration into patio and backyard designs.  

"We created Elemental to enrich the outdoor living experience," explains D1 founder, Bob Hallam. "As an inviting, warm water gathering spot, this new kind of home spa will underscore the point that no backyard is complete without the element of water."

Vic Walker, Product Design Manager at D1 Spas, points to this year's American Institute of Architects Trend Survey, which reported that 94 percent of landscape architects surveyed said that outdoor living spaces are growing in popularity.  

"Humans are instinctually drawn to nature," says Walker.  "Designing a home spa that truly reflects the natural elements and meets the needs of outdoor living felt right to us.  Because it blends so well with backyard and patio spaces, we often describe Elemental as liquid furniture."

Since outdoor rooms are as unique and distinctive as the homes they are a part of, Elemental doesn't limit consumers' choices to a few stock options. Rather, it is designed to encourage consumers to use their own design ideas and personalize their Elemental to fit their own outdoor look and style.

Exteriors are textured with water-based, eco-friendly material and available in an array of colors including Snow, Moss, Onyx, Canvas, and Canyon.  The Canvas model is specially made to be customized by the owner – which can be as simple as rolling on a different color of exterior paint or as unique as creating your own designs to reflect your personality. Each spa features an integrated, easy-to-use cover, aluminum bases and accent pieces, and a choice of architectural panel inserts.  Utilizing high-efficiency LED exterior lights, the Elemental creates a landscape lighting feature that enhances any outdoor space. Both elegant in design and advanced in technology, Elemental was not only inspired by the elements, but built to withstand them.  

With a width height of 32 inches and a dry weight of only 350 pounds, Elemental is as at home on condo/apartment patios and balconies as it is in expansive outdoor rooms.

Designed to break the paradigm of spa design, Elemental utilizes patio-appropriate colors and textures to create a home spa that can match virtually any backyard. Understated and stylish, Elemental uses softened geometry and artisan details to create the ultimate accent for your backyard oasis.  www.d1spas.com
