BainUltra has launched the Scala tub. Inspired by a centuries-old Milan opera house, the tub is a contemporary version of the traditional clawfoot. Scala is notable for its modern metal feet and elongated oval silhouette, as well as the optional metal armrests available in different colors that coordinate to the feet. It has a minimalist outer shell and a host of available therapy options.

Scala is sized at 72” long by 42” wide. Crafted of acrylic, this tub has gentle curves and wider front and rear decks. Scala is available in a glossy white or UltraVelour matte finish. The metal feet and coordinating armrests are offered in eight different finishes, including new options for satin brass, matte black and black chrome.

The tub is available in the Thermomasseur category, as well as a soaker version with BainUltra’s new chromatherapy Illuzio and Thermotherapy. BainUltra’s new Illuzio chromatherapy system features LED lights embedded within the structure of the bath that are imperceptible when not in operation. The lights glow through the tub’s acrylic shell to provide therapeutic benefits and a visual effect.
