MTI loves the designers who visit our MTI house and experience our products.

Trade Show Revised-LR

We loved the exciting BDNY show and our MTI booth that was designed as a tribute to the amazing city that is New York! Lots of accolades on our intricate etchings of iconic NY landmarks on tub, vanity and sink. An added bonus — the Matthew Quinn-designed Continuum was named Best of BDNY Finalist!

Thanks to Brizo Faucet for the fabulous faucetry and Palmer Industries for the edgy vanity legs that showcased the Continuum so well; The Furniture Guild for their new Winston Vanity that held the MTI Wymara sink; and Walker Zanger for the beautiful shower tile that enhanced the MTI shower base in our booth!

The Matthew Quinn-designed Continuum won a prestigious 2016 International Iconic Award, at the 4th Annual Iconic Awards Event in Munich. Top architects and product designers submitted Drucktheir work for consideration in this prestigious awards event from the German Design Council and 23 countries were represented. The Iconic Awards  was held in the amazing BMW Welt next to the BMW Museum in Munich and the award was accepted by MTI President Russell Adams on behalf of MTI Baths and Matthew Quinn Collections.

Outstanding innovative interior and product design are honored by the jury of the Iconic Awards. As an independent, international architecture and design competition, the Iconic Awards focus on the interplay between all the disciplines in the architecture, construction and real estate sector and the design and productive industries. Read press release.

Stream Bath® is an entirely new form of hydrotherapy, exclusively with MTI. Not a whirlpool or air bath. Whirlpools offer deep-tissue massage. Air baths provide a full-body massage from gentle to more vigorous. Stream Bath is neither, and it’s the gentlest of all. The calm, quiet and serenity of a forest stream. Now available on most Designer Collection drop-in soaking tubs and air baths. More about Stream Bath.


MTI Baths’ Juliet tub has been awarded Special mention in the Bath & Wellness category of the German Design Awards – one of the most highly respected international design competitions in the world. “It is a huge honor to win the prestigious German Design Award,” stated Russell Adams, MTI’s President and Chief of Design who worked in tandem with Audrey Newsome of Audrey Newsome Designs. “The Juliet tub was actually inspired by an antique bowl which evoked something striking and unexpected,” said Newsome. “It resulted in a visually dramatic tub that seamlessly combines fluidity and elegance with modern convenience.”


Pushing the Design Continuum. The new Matthew Quinn-designed MTI Continuum offers a sleek, sophisticated style that is certain to attract attraction. Its ingenious construction uses the countertop cut-out to form the bottom of the sink, creating an illusion of a seamless design that allows the striations of the counter material to visually flow ‘through’ the sink. This semi-recessed sink is a perfect example of re-imagining everyday objects.  Matthew Quinn, renowned kitchen and bath designer, has designed several stunning products for MTI’s Boutique Collection.

MTI Baths announces the promotion of Matt Ceren to National Sales Manager/Rep Groups. In this new role Ceren’s responsibilities will include functional leadership over all representative groups and making sure MTI’s corporate message, strategy and goals are being implemented and delivered consistently in each market throughout the U.S.
