The Silvia bathtub has a timeless and functional design. It is inspired by the shape of a first known terracotta bathtub from 1700 BC. Silvia is ergonomically designed, so that it corresponds to human shape and is wider in shoulders and gets narrower towards feet. This shape also brings substantial reduction in water use, from 280 to 130 litres. The overflow integrated in a thin wall is an innovative solution that so far has not been applied in mass production.
