The Acanthus is a contemporary freestanding broad-rim bath suitable for 2 people. Organically shaped at the bottom and visually crisply sliced, exposes the broad rim of this luxurious bathtub.
The ergonomically designed angle of the backrest of the Acanthus bath ensures ultimate comfort.
The Acanthus is practical in the sense that the broad rim is not only for aesthetics, but also for a more practical application, including a surface to put objects on, for instance your champagne glass, whilst soaking in this beautiful bathtub.
Dado suggests the Bologna basin or the Annelie freestanding basin to complement the Acanthus bath.
DADO is passionate about our unique DADOquartz material. The first finely ground quartz and resin based material for bath ware in the world. The entire process of material selection, treatment and finishing is tightly controlled.
As a result DADOquartz offers critical features: full-bodied products, mildew and mould resistance, heat retention, colour stability, non-water absorbency, uv resistance, and high thermal shock resistance. These are the properties behind the 25-year warranty.
