As part of the core refurbishment of a Düsseldorf villa built in 1927, one of the areas the owners decided to redesign was the bathroom. They chose natural stone for the wet areas, walls and floor, thereby creating a personal oasis of well-being using exclusive stone intricately finished to striking effect. In collaboration with the architect the owner turned his dream of a marble bathtub into reality. He designed an extraordinary form for a solid bathtub and wash basin, made from a raw block of high-quality Covelano marble.
