Recently introduced at this years Maison et Object show was the Cuna bathtub designed by Italian architect and designer Carlo Colombo (who also designed the Vascabarca-Barcavasca boat shaped bathtub) for Antonio Lupi.
The modern bathtub has a built in backrest and comes in two color variations; white on white and olive green exterior with white interior.
The one thing I have to say, being relatively short in stature, is that, although I haven't sat in this tub personally, I fear that if you weren't tall, and couldn't anchor your feet at the end of the tub, you might continually slip into the water . But that's just speculation on my part.
What do you think?
