The Koi bathtub features an aged brushed brass base resembling the scales pattern of the Japanese Koi carp. The contrived patina iron tub has an oval shape and a curved lip, making it the perfect resting spot for your head. The name of this contemporary bathtub and the Japanese word for love are homophones making the carp a symbol of love and affection.
KOI carp is a recurring symbol of Japanese culture, highly appreciated by its decorative purposes, not only in water gardens but also in Irezumi practice or, most commonly, in tattoos. Its natural colour mutations reveal their capacity to adapt, just like the KOI wash basin that you can use to create a better sense of space division in your ambiences. The KOI scales that compose the panels of the wash basin shine and reflect – on its brass surface – the sun caught throughout the clear water. KOI and the Japanese word for love or affection are homophones, making the carp also a symbol of love and friendship.
