Prototype, Shower Trellis Grab Bar with Shelf, Sprayer Holder, and Hook, 2016

This is a Prototype. It was designed by Michael Graves Design Group and manufactured by Moen Inc.. It is dated 2016. Its medium is stainless steel, polypropylene.

Clunky grab bars are often afterthoughts installed for safety. When redesigned as an elegant square frame, the Shower Trellis Grab Bar serves diverse needs and generations: multiple touch points to prevent slipping by both adults and small children, a footrest for shaving legs, a shelf for shampoo and soap, and a place to hang a brush.

This object was donated by Michael Graves. It is credited Gift of Moen Inc..
