Drummonds – the designer and manufacturer of luxury bathroom products, including foundry-made and hand-finished solid cast iron and stone tubs, vanities, showers, brassware fixtures and accessories – is pleased to introduce another bathtub designed by Martin Brudnizki. A part of their ongoing collaboration with Martin Brudnizki, Drummonds’ new cast iron Wandle bath is Brudnizki’s take on a traditional form. Ergonomically designed around the human form, the sloping end is the same width from top to bottom in order to accommodate a bather’s shoulders and allow a bather’s head to rest comfortably.
The perfect bath for restful reading or soaking, the Wandle comes designed either with feet, giving a classic look, or a skirt, which brings the bath lower to the floor for a more modern feel. The industrial aesthetic of the feet is inspired by iron beams in a Victorian pump house, while the skirt echoes the bulbous bow of a ship. As with all Drummonds’ cast iron baths, each Wandle takes several weeks to make using a traditional process; this involves casting the raw metal, shot-blasting and then enameling the material with the lengthy dry-frit process that gives a snow white, incredibly durable enamel surface. The exterior can be painted, primed or polished to order.
