TR-1620/Trono & ES-1600/Essenza by Hideo Shimizu

Two new freestanding bathtubs (Trono & Essenza) designed by Hideo Shimizu will be the stars of Fuorisalone 2023. Two high-end products, conceived as luxury furniture, ideal to indulge in a long and pleasant moment of relaxation.


The model TR-1620 / Trono (162x137xh59 cm) alternates two curved walls with two tilted square walls for one upright seating position and another fully extended position, for one or two people at a time. The comfort and free use is further complemented by complete safety while entering and exiting the tub.


An absolute novelty is the model ES-1600 / Essenza (160x95xh62 cm), which, with its dynamic and enveloping shape, represents the essence of comfort granted by the step, armrests and footrests that perfectly support the body.

Driven by a search for beauty, designer and founder of the brand, Hideo Shimizu, asserted himself on the global market with a collection of freestanding bathtubs connoted by curvy, soft and fluid lines, each conceived as a piece of luxury furniture, a one-of-a-kind sculpture designed to yield maximum relaxation and comfort during use.


As the previous models, the new bathtubs made of CRISTALPLANT® BIOBASED® Active present a matt white texture and are equipped with every comfort to grant users an experience of immersion into the warm water that goes beyond ablution and ascends to a private moment of relaxation where you can indulge in reading or calm conversation with the person of your choice.
