Kaldewei extends Meisterstücke Collection
Models with two and three-sided panelling for wall and corner installation

Following the successful market launch of the Meisterstücke Collection – freestanding bathtubs with fully enamelled panelling, Kaldewei has now added models for corner and wall installation. The Meisterstück Centro Duo and Meisterstück Conoduo bathtubs are now available in variants with two and three-sided fully enamelled panelling. Kaldewei is thus offering fully enamelled solutions for every installation situation.

In consistently developing its premium range, Kaldewei is opening up new scope for high-end bathroom design: the Kaldewei Meisterstücke Centro Duo and Conoduo with two and three-sided panelling are highly persuasive thanks to the universal and seamless use of sublime, robust Kaldewei steel enamel – be it as a corner solution or for wall installation. The new Kaldewei bathtub models with fully enamelled panelling also score because of their exceptional ease of installation: the waste fitting of the bathtubs has already been pre-installed by the factory, and a base or pedestal is not necessary. Furthermore, thanks to the enamelled panelling, the sides of the bathtub do not need to be tiled, saving both time and money.

Flexibility and superb design, down to the smallest detail
The Meisterstück Centro Duo and the Meisterstück Conoduo feature minimalist lines whose timeless elegance is completed by an enamelled waste cover and a discreet overflow. Both bathtub models are available as left and right variants, and Kaldewei’s easy clean finish comes as standard. Thanks to their modern look, unique range of different models, and the outstanding properties of Kaldewei steel enamel, the Meisterstücke with two and three-sided panelling are the perfect solution for individual, high-end bathroom design, and are particularly suitable for clients with exacting design and material standards.
In addition to the Meisterstücke for wall and corner installation, Kaldewei already has Meisterstücke as freestanding variants in its multi-faceted product portfolio, introduced in 2014. These fully enamelled models are ideal for free positioning within a room.

Kaldewei Skin Touch: A New Year, A New You

Kaldewei_7_2_Skin_Touch(web)

Natural power of oxygen produces revolutionary beauty and health effects

More supple, smoother and younger looking skin after just one bath: the new beauty sensation “Kaldewei Skin Touch” turns a bath into a fountain of youth. The system uses the revitalising effect of pure oxygen, producing an incomparable bathing experience with unique cosmetic results. There will be demonstration models in the UK from January 2016, so you can experience the effects of Skin Touch for yourself.

Kaldewei Skin Touch combines the ultimate relaxation of a bath with luxurious, deep-penetrating body care. Microfine air bubbles flow into the bath water and enrich it with natural oxygen, producing an instantly noticeable anti-aging effect. Cell production and circulation are stimulated, skin is deeply cleansed, lines and wrinkles are smoothed – all entirely without bath additives. The tiny air bubbles disperse evenly through the tub like a delicate bath milk, softly caressing the body. The result is skin that feels velvety-smooth and silky from head to foot and stays that way long after a bath as well.

With Skin Touch, a bath in a Kaldewei bathtub made of natural steel enamel is transformed into a deeply satisfying regeneration and body care experience. A discreet jet enriches the water with tiny bubbles of air which are up to 100 times smaller than those in whirl baths and significantly increase the oxygen content of the bathwater. Skin Touch is available for most of the approximately 200 Kaldewei bathtubs. It is fitted flush with the side wall and operates at a very low volume – the absolutely ideal conditions for a relaxing beauty bath!

Hydrated Skin is Healthier Skin

In addition to revolutionary beauty effects, Skin Touch also delivers healthier skin. The bubbles are so tiny that they enter the skin’s pores to hydrate the skin which can relieve irritation from common conditions like eczema and psoriasis. This penetration of the skin, which is the body’s largest organ, allows Skin Touch to more effectively promote wellness than traditional whirlpool systems: it improves circulation, releases toxins and increases cardiovascular activity.

Skin Touch is like having your own health and beauty spa in the comfort of your own private bathroom. It delivers a difference that you can see and feel long after you have taken a bath and not just while you are soaking in the tub.

Available from January 2016, there are two versions of Skin Touch, Choose from the standard version with on/off control or Skin Touch Emotion which includes an electronic control panel and mood enhancing spectral lighting.

Skin Touch costs from £2,543.00 (incl. VAT)

Kaldewei now offers solutions for every project – Comprehensive and Affordable Shower Floors

Kaldewei Shower Floors lead image for blog

With the expansion of Scona, Kaldewei has grown its shower programme to include almost any size requirement, installation type and the lowest price point than ever before for modern, low level showering. Scona and Superplan, especially, offer outstanding designs and are stars of affordability within the Kaldewei portfolio. Combined with an ultra low Kaldewei waste fitting and installation aid, they are easy to fit and achieve a luxurious, contemporary look either at low level or completely flush with the floor.

Made from 3.5mm steel enamel, all Kaldewei shower surfaces are robust, extremely hygienic and available in a choice of anti-slip finishes. Guaranteed for 30 years, they are the ultimate solution for shower floors.

The Scona floor-level shower surface resembles a large flat tile. First launched in 2014 in 9 sizes, it is available in a further 35 sizes this year; it features a central circular waste, set within the perfectly square or rectangular surface. For the design conscious consumer on a budget it offers a contemporary walk-in design at an affordable price and is easy to install on the floor or flush for a wetroom finish.

Superplan is the great basic all-rounder available in 17 sizes. As a shower surface, it offers a hard-wearing universal solution at a practical price point. The design features a corner circular waste and is perfect for consumers wanting a wetroom look but prefer a little depth when showering. Superplan XXL combines super size with superior steel enamel strength and is the perfect product to replace a bath in 23 sizes up to 100 x 180cm. Both Superplan and Superplan XXL can be installed as a low profile tray or flush with the floor.Award-winning designs and easy installation

Kaldewei’s trend-setting designs are available in alpine white and the 12 matt colours from the Coordinated Colours Collection. From woody browns and grey shades to deep lava black, these attractive matt colours are perfectly matched to tile, stone, slate, wood and other natural materials popular for the bathroom.

In addition to the shower surface itself, Kaldewei also lends a hand with the installation. Three ingenious systems cater for different floor structures and varying installation heights to ensure a professional, water-tight finish whether the surface is flush, low profile or raised. Kaldewei’s new generation KA90 waste fittings complete the solution by guaranteeing adequate drainage capacity at an ultra low height.

Complete shower programme to replace tiled floors

Kaldewei has been setting the standard for achieving modern, floor level showering with the highest levels of design and reliable long-term performance. With the expansion of Scona, there are now well over 50,000 model versions across the programme. Award-winning designs like Xetis offer the ultimate in minimal floors with the drain discreetly hidden in the base of the wall, and Conoflat an elegant seamless design with matching flush waste cover made of steel enamel.

Whichever design you choose, unlike a tiled floor, a Kaldewei shower surface is easy to keep clean thanks to its smooth enamelled pore-free surface. The absence of grout lines ensures that dirt has nowhere to hide and the floor stays hygienic and looking as good as new for the life of the shower.

Shower Floors – We’ve got them covered

Kaldewei has produced a new 12 page brochure about its comprehensive shower solutions designed specifically for the UK market. It is available immediately and gives complete details of the sizes, colours and installation aids for the affordable Scona and Superplan models.

Kaldewei installs Meisterstücke at Schloss Elmau Retreat

Hotel premiere for designer baths with enamelled panelling

The world famous Hotel Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps has expanded with the opening of the “Schloss Elmau Retreat – Luxury Suites & Spa”. The 5-star superior property has now been enhanced with 47 spacious suites with bathrooms containing a very special highlight: Schloss Elmau Retreat is the first hotel worldwide to feature Kaldewei Meisterstücke baths. These bathtubs with enamelled panelling – both freestanding and the recessed version with double-sided panelling – are of unparalleled comfort and have received numerous awards for their ground-breaking design. They are, moreover, made entirely of the highest quality Kaldewei steel enamel. Leading heads of state will be able to test this extraordinary Kaldewei quality for themselves when they meet at the beginning of June at the new Schloss Elmau Retreat for the G7 summit.

The “Schloss Elmau” name stands for a unique hotel experience: offering a balanced mix of luxury and comfort, first-class spa treatments, and superb cultural and culinary choices, coupled with high-end architecture. This long-standing schloss hotel provides a harmonious combination of reenergising and inspiration. It comes as no surprise that this member of the “Leading Hotels of the World” has been recognised many times as one of the world’s best hotels.

Schloss Elmau has opened a further property – situated in a peaceful valley with a spectacular view of the mountains – and now offers two 5-star superior hotels in one. Guests at the Schloss Elmau Retreat can enjoy 47 suites of up to 200 square metres, spacious terraces, three restaurants, a library and a lounge with open fireplaces, as well as a 2,000 square metre spa.

The bathroom: the ultimate in luxury and comfort

With an area of up to 24 square metres, the bathrooms in the new suites are extra spacious and feature an exclusive fit-out. “In choosing our partners to furnish the Schloss Elmau Retreat, apart from reliability we set great store by timeless aesthetics and the perfect functionality of the products,” explains Dietmar Müller-Elmau, Managing Director of Schloss Elmau GmbH & Co. KG. Highest quality was therefore also a must for the bathrooms of the Schloss Elmau Retreat. The freestanding Kaldewei Meisterstück Centro Duo Oval and the Kaldewei Meisterstück Centro Duo with double-sided panelling for recessed installation, are the ultimate choices for ensuring extraordinary bathing pleasure.

Kaldewei_Peninsula_Paris_Letterbox1

Stylish bathroom ambience with enamelled bathtubs from Kaldewei

Custom-made chandeliers, magnificent decoration, marble floors and modern furniture. For decades the Peninsula name has been synonymous with glamour and style. With The Peninsula Paris, the luxury hotel group opened its first property in Europe. The hotel’s exceptional standard is underlined in all of the bathrooms with Kaldewei bathtubs. The hotel group has already placed its trust in the premium manufacturer’s high quality material and timeless design in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Shanghai and Chicago.

The Peninsula Group not only stands for high quality awareness and a sense of style: their first-class locations are a further reason why The Peninsula is famed throughout the international hotel industry. For its 5-star property in Paris, the hotel group selected a late 19th century classic French-style building with Haussmann and Neo-Classical details, centrally located on illustrious Avenue Kléber – just a few steps away from the Arc de Triomph and the Champs-Élysées.

Luxury bathing pleasure with Kaldewei
In the grandly furnished bathrooms of the Peninsula Paris, the Kaldewei Centro Duo Oval bathtub made of precious steel enamel invites guests to enjoy an exclusive, relaxing bath. The tub, designed by the renowned Italian design firm of Sottsass Associati, is one of the focal points of the spacious bathrooms which are fitted out in black and white marble. Oval in shape and with a depth of 47 cm, the Centro Duo Oval bathtub guarantees the highest degree of comfort, while captivating the eye with its pure lines. Three of the hotel suites furthermore feature Ellipso Duo Oval bathtubs with the Kaldewei Vivo Turbo Plus whirl system, ensuring a very special wellness experience.
