to infinity… and beyond


infinity-pool-surrounded-by-nature

Where does the water end and the horizon begin? That in a nutshell is the question that arises by the best Infinity Pools (also named negative edge, zero edge, disappearing edge or vanishing edge pool). An Infinity Pool is a swimming or reflecting pool which produces a visual effect of water extending to the horizon, vanishing, or extending to “infinity”.

They are often seen at exotic resorts, exclusive estates, and in advertisements. The infinity pool design concept is said to have originated in Bali Indonesia, where its inspiration came directly from observing the dramatic effect created by the ubiquitous terraced rice paddies, known locally as sawah, for which the island is famous.

For me, it has been a ‘long courtship’ to win me over on the concept of a 'negative edge'. But these ‘designer pools’ have really worked hard and have finally got me. Visually stunning and always situated on a gorgeous backdrop, I am now in love with their concept and their beauty.
