A former boat builder is now making breathtaking wooden bathtubs, which are sustainable, non-toxic, better insulated, and durable.
Often, some of the most creative designs and works of art come from people who’ve abandoned their usual professions to venture in their talents.
Nathie Katzoff is a former boat builder, but he has now devoted his life to making some of the most beautiful, practical and incredible bathtubs you’ll ever find.
His creative inventions are made of wood and are eco-friendly. We guarantee you you’ve never seen anything like them before.
The tubs handcrafted from sustainable and exotic hardwoods. They’re then sealed with a specialized finish that makes them smooth, shiny, and waterproof.
Katzoff revealed that he likes to work with wood because it creates incredible structures of beauty, and they can last for many years.
He told Iconic Life Magazine:
“It is not petroleum-based, casted, or a refined product that involves massive amounts of energy to create. Wood comes from the Earth, and if it is harvested and treated appropriately, it will last to forever.”
Whether you like the round or rectangular bathtub, you can select from several designs and styles that’ll match with your bathroom fittings.
“We use FSC-certified hardwoods and have done lots of recycling and reclaiming of local trees for much of our work.”
“At the end of the day, beautiful and timeless pieces are the most sustainable, because when they go out of style, they don’t end up in a waste pile.”
A circular bathtub will add a contemporary modern touch to your bathroom.
The tubs don’t require maintenance and are unaffected by extreme dryness humidity, or everyday cleaning products, according to Katzoff’s website, NKwoodworking.com.
Also, since wood insulates heat better than porcelain or metal, a wooden bathtub will keep your bathing water hot longer than the traditional tubs.
Katzoff’s custom pieces cost around $30,000 each.
