The shower is the next object of investigation of the virtual drawing workshop “Which Object is This?”.
Few people know that the electric shower was created in 1927 by a Brazilian, in Jaú, a small town in the interior of the state of São Paulo. It is part of science that many of his discoveries do not reveal their potential as soon as they are invented, so Francisco Canhos Navarro – the inventor of the electrical system for showers – did not give so much value to his discovery, which resulted in the loss of the patent for his creation.
Bathing is a peak moment in the day for anyone who has access to this resource. It is preparatory for babies and adults to sleep, but also part of the uprightness for a trip.
Bathing is a time of delight and cleansing; for many people it is an aspect of care. However, it is under the shower that one of the best contexts for experimenting with the singing voice and unparalleled intimacy takes place.
And in your routine, where is the shower?
The activity takes place this Saturday, September 25, from 10am. We will have space and time to exchange ideas and designs. Children and adults are welcome.
And speaking of showers, remember that drinking water is an essential and limited resource and, therefore, its conscientious use is essential also at bath time.
