British bath manufacturer, Cabuchon Bathforms, has launched its sixth-generation deep soaking tub, the Takara. Like the other baths in its deep soaking range, it is inspired by the traditional Japanese ofuro but it includes a host of refinements designed to enhance comfort. It will also accommodate modern technologies, such as spa hydrotherapy, to better suit Western bathing habits
The new bath retains many design features popular amongst previous customers. In particular, it has an in-built seat with armrests. This holds the bather in a comfortable, well-supported, semi-reclined sitting position that puts no strain on the neck and shoulders.
The most distinctive feature of the Takara is the addition of grab bars above the armrests. Like all of Cabuchon’s deep soaking tubs, the Takara is easy to enter and exit, but the incorporation of these ergonomically placed bars adds an additional sense of security for those who want it.
The bath has a compact design, with external dimensions of 1372x860mm.
