KALLISTA EXTENDS PERFECT BATH COLLECTION WITH TWO NEW DESIGNS

To expand upon its earlier success with its two original rectangular, two-person Perfect Bath introduction in 2008, Kallista, a leading provider of luxury plumbing products, launched its Perfect Oval and Perfect Deep Soak Baths and Perfect Oval Air Bath at the 2009 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show in Atlanta.  Later in 2009, the Deep Soak tub will also be offered with Air Bath technology.  The universal baths’ minimal, classic lines complement traditional and contemporary settings fusing precise engineering and innovative design with comfort and elegance.

“The Perfect Bath Collection is designed to not only be functional, but also beautiful,” explained John Hart, chief creative officer, Kohler Interiors.  “We approached it from an interior design standpoint.  The designs are easy on the eye and do not distract from the overall bath environment yet incorporates the comfort and engineering required for a deep, relaxing soak.” 

Built for residential and commercial installations as drop-ins or undermounted installations, the Perfect Oval Bath and Air Bath offer an impressive 72x42-inch size and a unique, elliptical shape designed for ultimate support and relaxation.  The 48x48-inch square Perfect Deep Soak has two raised corner seats for comfort and generous 34-inch depth. The higher seat is strategically placed at a universal sitting height, while the lower seat is situated at a shallower depth to assist with entering the bath and for total submersion.
 
“The Perfect Bath series was universally designed and sized to complement a wide range of bathroom faucets, fixtures and accessories by Kallista,” said Chris Baldwin, general manager, Kallista.  “It augments the existing collections by providing a tub or air bath solution that will work with any of its traditional or contemporary designs.”
 
Unlike standard gelcoat tubs, the Perfect Bath Collection offers extra thick, seamless acrylic construction allowing for a smooth, uniform finish and rich color depth.  The Perfect Air Baths offer 122 air jets precisely positioned to immerse the bather in a complete body air massage.  A remote control with three-zone control and multi-function key pad allows the bather to control his or her environment with a touch, providing the ultimate in functionality and customization.  Sensors activate an automatic cycle to remove residual water from the air channels when drained for convenience and continual maintenance.  Remote pump location provides installation options depending on access preference.
 
Offered in Kallista’s standard colors of Stucco White or Linen, the Perfect Bath features innovative, integrated shapes providing graceful sloped sides and side overflow for luxurious comfortable bathing.  The Perfect Baths are fitted with a solid brass Kallista Cable Drain or Flip Drain option in contemporary and traditional overflow hoods, and are available in Kallista’s Chrome, Nickel Silver, Brushed Nickel, Gunmetal, Antique Bronze and Bronze finish options.
