arsiglia is a bathtub of limited length which was born from the encounter of a contemporary material - the Cristalplant® biobased - and an object of the past, the memory of fragrances and shapes: a washhouse. It was a place where women once gathered to wash clothes in the vicinity of a waterway, normally made in stone or concrete, and a washtub was often used together with a wooden board. Marsiglia is particularly suitable for environments with reduced dimensions thanks to its regular shape and reduced length. The bathtub reinterprets some signs of memory: its broad surface that develops on the long side is the major distinctive element. A slight slope in the surface allows water drain, and its profoundness and convenience allows adding even more objects and accessories in the bathroom.
