KOHLER, Wis. (April 11, 2008) – Kallista, a leading provider of luxury plumbing products, unveiled the Perfect Tub at the 2008 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show in Chicago. The Perfect Tub is the first in a series of universal acrylic baths and airbaths that fuse precise engineering and innovative design with comfort and elegance.

The Perfect Tub is thoughtfully executed for the ultimate bathing experience. The generous 69x37-inch size has been engineered to comfortably accommodate one or two bathers. Its generous, rectangular form includes a 22½-inch depth allowing for a deep, relaxing soak. Minimal, with clean, classic lines, the tub is equally at home in traditional or contemporary settings.

Built to complement residential and commercial installations, the Perfect Tub is offered as an under-mount or drop-in version. Unlike standard gelcoat tubs, the Perfect Tub is a seamless, acrylic construction allowing for a smooth, uniform finish and incomparable water temperature retention. Offered in Kallista's standard colors of Stucco White or Linen, the Perfect Tub's innovative, integrated shape provides, graceful sloped sides and side overflow for luxurious, comfortable bathing. The Perfect Tub is fitted with the new Kallista Cable Drain available in Kallista's Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver and Brushed Nickel, and Gunmetal finish options.

"The Perfect Tub is a flawless combination of aesthetics and function," said John Hart, chief merchandising officer, ANN SACKS & Kallista. "From its unique shape and depth with custom under-mount or drop-in versions to its ergonomic design integrating lumbar support into both sides of the tub, the Perfect Tub was designed to respond to a diverse audience."
