5. Victoria + Albert introduces new Barcelona and Mozzano models

Luxury British bathing brand Victoria + Albert Baths launches new dimensions to its Barcelona and Mozzano bath collections—the Barcelona 2, Barcelona 3, and Mozzano 2. These favourites are now available in various sizes, offering additional options to suit individual bath preferences.

Barcelona 2

Barcelona 3

Both the Barcelona 2 and Barcelona 3 follow the same design aesthetic as the popular Barcelona bath, inspired by the city famous for its organic design. Its design balances elegance and minimalism, adding a touch of modern luxury to your bathroom. The Barcelona 2 is the most compact tub in the collection, allowing it to be installed in smaller bathrooms where space is at a premium and high design standards are valued.

Mozzano 2

A beautifully crafted rimless freestanding bath with a low step-in height and subtle curves, the sleek Mozzano 2 follows the same design as the Mozzano bath but in a larger size. The iconic design adds real architectural presence to a bathroom, and its angle of recline guarantees a comfortable soak. Just like the Barcelona 2 and Barcelona 3, Mozzano 2 features a void space underneath for waste plumbing to ease installation, making it the ideal for the contract market. The Mozzano 2 is also available in seven different exterior finishes.

As with all Victoria + Albert’s baths, the Mozzano 2, Barcelona 2 and Barcelona 3 are made using the brand’s exclusive material, QUARRYCAST™; a unique blend of Volcanic Limestone™ and high-performance resins with a number of beneficial properties.
