Hydro Systems Highlights from Boutique Design New York

We’ve just returned from Boutique Design New York (BDNY), one of the leading annual events in the design and hospitality industry. The event was attended by over 8,000 design, architecture, and hotel professionals. We were honored that our Cold Plunge system was selected as a finalist for the Best of BDNY Product Awards in the Health and Wellness category. Honorees like Cold Plunge were selected for their functionality, creativity of design, use of materials, and innovation.


Several BDNY guests endured a chilling 3-minute Cold Plunge challenge and received a chic Parachute Home robe for their bravery.

Cold hydrotherapy is the practice of soaking in water that’s around 59°F (15°C) or less. The benefits of cold plunge therapy are myriad, including:

  • Accelerated post-workout muscle and joint recovery
  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Increased metabolism

Cold Plunge users also report improved immune function, sleep, and mindfulness, and reduced anxiety.

Cold hydrotherapy has emerged as a leading wellness trend in boutique hotels, resorts, spas, and wellness facilities wishing to offer members and guests leading-edge treatments. As the industry’s only tub offering both hot and cold therapies in one, our Cold Plunge makes contrast therapy an option in a single tub and eliminates the need for standalone “cold tubs.” This versatility makes it popular with residential designers and homeowners, too. The water-cooling equipment can be installed in a concealed cabinet, custom enclosure or storage space, within eight feet of the bath.

We love the enthusiasm for these innovative products that we saw at BDNY.

Along with Cold Plunge, our NEW Lido tub in Grey Beige made a splash at BDNY. Lido takes inspiration from the curvilinear sweep of the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, designed by renowned architect, Morris Lapidus in 1954.


BDNY attendees took a shine to the iridescent finish on our Alamo freestanding tub. This custom finish is just one of the nearly limitless ways to customize color on our HydroLuxe SS tubs. In addition to our 15 premium colors, we can match any Pantone, RAL or any swatch for a perfect custom tub.
