Active Birth Pools are handmade to order in the United Kingdom by Design & Form Ltd.

Our specialism is applying ergonomic principles to the design of water birth pools.

Design & Form’s specialism is materials & manufacturing.

We have both been at the forefront of our respective industries for over 30 years and bring an unrivalled wealth of experience, wisdom and knowledge to the creation of our products.

When it came time to talk about manufacture we thought it best to let Design & Form do the talking…

Our single most important value is quality

  • The quality of our designs determines the comfort, function and beauty of our baths.
  • The quality of our craftsmanship is key to their reliability and value.
  • The quality of our materials confers unique and distinctive benefits, while the quality of our service means customers can enjoy meningful support at every stage – from design to delivery and beyond.

Designing Top Quality Baths

Design & Form has been designing superior quality, luxury baths for over a quarter of a century.

We select our designers on the basis of their vision, their track record, their creative originality and – most especially – their shared commitment to delivering the best possible bathing experience.

In all our bath designs, we seek to combine good taste, elegance, comfort and functionality.

Whether traditional or contemporary, our baths are characterised by classic styling and a real fixation on detail.

The most important part of the design process – to which we pay considerable attention – is customer research.

Some of our bath designs have taken literally years to perfect.

They are the product of interviews, client suggestions, physical trials and other measures.

Every new model is shaped by feedback and painstaking discussions about the best possible marriage of comfort, function and style.

Though the process can be slow, it’s well worth taking the time to get things right; we believe the resulting baths are the very best of their kind.


Crafting Quality Baths

Craftsmanship is the key to realising our creative visions.

When the company was first established, a deliberate choice was made to locate it in an area with a strong tradition of hand-crafting.

This gave us the foundation we needed and ensured that quality always remained our hallmark.

Since then – over a period of more than 30 years – our workforce has grown and developed.

Through training and apprenticeships, we have sustained that vital expertise. Indeed, some of our staff now represent a second generation of local families who continue to work as part of the Design & Form team.

We have specialists in all the key stages of production, from pattern and tool-making to finishing, and they possess the critical skills necessary for installing some of the world’s most advanced, tailored hydrotherapy systems.
