Victoria + Albert Pescadero Bath launches in Milan
Victoria + Albert Pescadero Bath *Now available to order from Just Bathroomware*
The Victoria + Albert Pescadero bath inspired by the sea, features a dynamically undulating rim, designed to form a distinctive, asymmetrical ‘wave’. The contours of the bath are accentuated by smart, sculpted ‘swage’ details on the inner and outer sides of the bath, creating crisp shadow lines to emphasise the bath’s unique shape.
Victoria + Albert Baths, the luxury British bathing brand known worldwide for its beautiful QUARRYCAST® freestanding baths and basins, has unveiled its newest design – the Pescadero – at this year’s Salone del Mobile exhibition in Milan.
In keeping with the aquatic vibe of the bath, the Pescadero is named after the secluded coastal Californian town, popular with local surfers. With a deep, double-ended bathing well, the Pescarero freestanding bath comfortably holds one or two people for single or double bathing. Measuring a compact 1695mm long, it is ideal for both large and small bathrooms requiring a statementmaking design.
As with all Victoria + Albert’s baths, it is made using the brand’s exclusive material, QUARRYCAST®; a unique blend of Volcanic Limestone™ and high Above: the unique curved ‘wave’ of the Pescadero bath performance resins with a number of beneficial properties. Warm to the touch – ensuring you never step foot into a cool bath while also retaining heat for longer – it is luxuriously smooth, wipe clean, scratch-resistant, super-strong and lightweight, with each bath weighing around the same as an adult male.
So confident is Victoria + Albert with its material, each bath comes with a 25- year consumer guarantee.
Traditionally, QUARRYCAST® has been available in a natural polish white finish. From April 2016, however, all Victoria + Albert Baths will be available in seven distinctive external finishes, including gloss white, gloss black, matte white, matte black, anthracite, stone grey and light grey.
The Victoria + Albert Pescadero bath joins a long line of uniquely shaped baths from the brand, including distinctive models such as the Cabrits, the Amalfi, the Napoli, the ionian and the Amiata, a Red Dot award winner created exclusively for Victoria + Albert by Italian design duo Meneghello Paolelli Associati.
