Eindhoven grad and designer Thomas Linssen, operating under his Studio ThoL brand, has combined two old things--a chair and a bathtub--and combined them to make one new thing: A tub made using chairmaking techniques, and skinned in a polyester composite.
Romans carved tubs out of stone, cowboys used large tin buckets, suburbanites had porcelain; but as Linssen points out, "due to science there are now many more materials available." Read his full description of the project, which he terms an "evolution," here.

Of course the slopes rule out this as a shower/tub combo, but in my dream house the two are separate anyway...
