The Karina™ Solid Surface Bathtub by Jacuzzi Luxury Bath Wins Beautiful Kitchens & Baths’ 30 Most Innovative Products Award

CHINO HILLS, CA – (February 15, 2019) – The Karina™ Solid Surface bath (https://www.jacuzzi.com/baths/bathtubs/karina) is the fourth consecutive winning design by Jacuzzi Luxury Bath on the 30 Most Innovative Products list published by Meredith Corporation’s Beautiful Kitchens & Baths magazine.  The list (TraditionalHome.com/30Most) unveils editors’ picks for their favorite kitchen and bath design products for 2019.  The Karina™ bathtub will be featured in the Spring issue of the magazine, on sale February 15, as well as in the May/June issue of Traditional Home magazine.

“I love how the Karina™ Solid Surface Bathtub combines sophisticated style with smart function—something Jacuzzi Luxury Bath is always very good at. The tub’s beautiful shape and unique, integrated ledge make it worthy of a prime spot in any luxury bath,” says Samantha Hart, Editor of Beautiful Kitchens & Baths.

The Karina™ bathtub is the eighth design and most recent addition to the Jacuzzi® Solid Surface Collection – Sculpted Stone™. Timeless style and functionality merge in the unique lines of the Karina™ bath crafted from Luxecast® solid surface. The distinctive ledge provides a flat surface for storage and serves as a practical towel bar.

The Jacuzzi® Solid Surface Collection is created using durable dolomite stone.  The naturally occurring magnesium and calcium minerals in the ground stone are then blended with resin, making the Luxecast® composite as durable as it is beautiful. The baths and sinks made with this organic material provide exceptional strength, resilience and beauty.

“The Karina™ bath is the ideal product for those who want to enjoy a freestanding bath, while having everything within reach,” states Erica Moir, Vice President of New Product Development.  She continues, “The sculptural opportunities of this material allowed us to push the envelope with this design.”
