Known for their exquisite collection of freestanding luxury baths, Victoria + Albert unveils their newest premium bathtub Cabrits. This strikingly-exotic bathtub embodies the beauty of its namesake — the exclusive Cabrits peninsula on the Caribbean island of Dominica. Luscious and tropical the peninsula is a natural product of extinct volcanoes, akin to the Cabrits bath which is crafted from ENGLISHCAST®, rich in volcanic limestone.
Cabrits is a luxurious fusion of modern art and ergonomics. The bathtub’s elegantly curvaceous shape makes for a gorgeous focal point and centerpiece of the bathroom, while its contours fit and support the body offering a superior bathing experience. The compact form and organic beauty of the Cabrits serves as an inspiration to extend the bathing experience into the bedroom or other open spaces within the home and its low profile is ideal for families with children.
The ecologically sound Cabrits bathtub uses less water (maximum water volume of just 46.5 gallons) and heat yet still provides the bather with a warm, luxurious soak due to the natural insulation of its ENGLISHCAST® construction. ENGLISHCAST® is a naturally white material rich in volcanic limestone that is beautifully warm to the touch and hand-finished by craftsmen to create a glossy finish that won’t creak or flex. It is highly durable and easy to clean. The Cabrits measures 68″ long, 29 3/8″ wide and 22 1/8″ deep. This tub retails for $5,900 and will be available July 1, 2012.
