St. Ives, June 2014. – Introducing its latest range of exclusive baths, Kaldewei presents “Meisterstücke” as a collection of masterpieces that embody state-of-the-art manufacturing and precise craftsmanship in perfect symbiosis. Made of familiar Kaldewei steel enamel 3.5 mm, the collection uncompromisingly continues the brand’s very essence. The uniquely formulated material has long since been synonymous with perfectly designed quality baths, shower trays and enamelled shower surfaces. Building on its success, the premium manufacturer has now extended its portfolio with a new generation of masterpieces with enamelled panelling. In a sophisticated technique its bath icons Conoduo, Asymmetric Duo and Centro Duo Oval are crafted by hand into masterpieces finished to perfection with enamelled panelling. The result is masterworks of modern bathroom culture: baths with enamelled panelling in a seamless finish for flawless perfection.

Kaldewei presents “Meisterstücke” as a new range available from June 2014. The new free-standing baths with enamelled panelling feature a seamless finish with a linear expression of style.
