Iconic centerpiece: Amiata bathtub from Victoria + Albert

Victoria + Albert has launched the Amiata freestanding bathtub.

Amiata is the brainchild of Milan’s Meneghello Paolelli Associati. The design atelier wanted to create a tub that recalled the Etruscan region of central Italy, an area with a tradition of luxury bathing. “Amiata” is the name of a local extinct volcano, which also recalls the raw volcanic limestone material used for the tub.

Amiata has both convex and concave shapes, providing contours for the body, as well as creating an interplay of light and shadow. The chamfered edge harnesses ambient illumination in various ways, in addition to providing textural appeal.
