(Atlanta, GA – May 12, 2010) One of the newest additions to MTI’s Boutique Collection is the Akana Suite of one-piece engineered solid-surface tub and sink – the ultimate in minimalist design. These new products are simple, elegant, modern and an ideal fit for the hospitality market.
The tub is available as a soaker or air bath with optional Stereo H20® integrated audio system. The sink can be specified in varying heights with or without a custom wall-mounted vanity. Only one of many products comprising MTI’s exclusive Boutique Collection, the Akana Suite is made in the USA and constructed using MTI’s “ESS” (Engineered Solid-Surface) material, a mixture of ground natural minerals and binding agents that are liquefied, poured and then hardened. Approximately 60% of the material is organic, including minerals mined from the earth and dirt, making it quite “Green”. Tough enough to stand up to the rigors of everyday use, MTI’s Akana Suite looks and feels like natural stone. Because the surface is non-porous, it is naturally resistant to stains.
The Akana tub measures 65.625” x 37.875” x 21.5” and ranges in price from $7,999 as a soaker to $11,599 as an air bath . The Akana LV sink as shown measures 24.25” x 18.375” x 3.125” and retails for $899. Both models feature one-piece construction and are available in white and biscuit in either a matte or gloss finish.
