This modern approach to bathtub design result in “sculptures” and they are practical works of art. They’re sustainable, non-toxic, better insulated, and built to last a lifetime.

A former boat builder has transferred and used his considerable skills to the design of unbelievably beautiful bathtubs.  They are practical, environmentally friendly, beautiful and art – all at the same time.

Nathie Katzoff , the creator of these glorious works says, “my history is in traditional wooden boats, so we have a background in wood and water mixing together.”

Each of his bathtub is a masterpiece and they are handcrafted from sustainable domestic and exotic hardwoods and then sealed with a specialized finish that makes them shiny, smooth and waterproof.

“Why wood? It is not petroleum-based, casted or a refined product that involves massive amounts of energy to create.”

“Wood comes from the Earth, and if it is harvested and treated appropriately, it will last to forever.”

“We use FSC-certified hardwoods and have done lots of recycling and reclaiming of local trees for much of our work. At the end of the day, beautiful and timeless pieces are the most sustainable, because when they go out of style, they don’t end up in a waste pile.”

The tubs are maintenance-free and unaffected by humidity, dryness, or common cleaning products, according to his website.

And because wood insulates better than metal or porcelain, the tubs keep the water hot longer.

Katz’ custom pieces start at around $30,000. If you don’t have that kind of money but like the trend, there are a few less expensive options, however the joy of having a statement ‘work of art’ bathtub that not only keeps the water warmer longer, it lasts a lifetime is the ultimate in environmentally friendly luxury.
