With its Marsiglia tub, the Italian brand has again succeeded in creating something that is at once contemporary and evocative of the past. Designed for Agape by the studio LucidiPevere, the freestanding bathtub (price upon request), which is offered in all white or with a light or dark gray exterior, is based on the rectangular basins of centuries-old public washhouses. It is formed from Cristalplant, an eco-sustainable composite that is malleable and nonporous and has a soft, velvety surface. One edge of the tub extends into a ledge for holding bath sundries, a book, or a glass of wine. agapedesign.it
