(Atlanta, GA – May 12, 2010) MTI Baths celebrates modern style with the Metro Collection of tubs and sinks. This contemporary suite is the epitome of form meeting function. The sleek Metro sinks feature a clean design that beautifully complements the equally dramatic Metro tub. The coordinating bath fixtures make a decidedly Eastern statement, creating a bath that is comfortably at home in the modern world.
The Metro Sinks are available in two generous sizes. Designed to mimic the clean lines of the Metro bath tubs, the Metro lavatory sinks are ideal in any contemporary or eclectic décor. The sinks are constructed using MTI’s “ESS” (Engineered Solid-Surface) material, which is 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”. The result is molded stone. Both the material and the fabrication process offer great flexibility in designing and manufacturing products with very soft, fluid lines or with precise geometric angles. These “Engineered Solid-Surface” products are non-porous, stain-resistant, mold and mildew-resistant. Easy to clean, these products will continue to look new with minimal maintenance.
The Metro LV is designed to fit flush on the countertop, creating a clean, contemporary look. The sink measures 22.125″ x 17.25″ x 4.5″ deep and retails for $899 in a white or biscuit, matte or gloss finish. The Metro Double LV features the same contemporary style just larger, measuring 37.25″ x 17.5″ x 4.5″ it retails for $1,099 in white or biscuit, matte or gloss finish. Stylish teak sink trays are also available.
Featuring a style characterized by minimalist design, generous functionality and MTI’s world-renowned superior workmanship, the Metro Tub is available in two sizes. Both models are undermountable, easily installed and come with a Lifetime Residential Warranty.
Constructed of durable cross-linked cast acrylic, the Metro 1 bathtub measures 71.75″ x 41.875″x 20″ and ranges in retail from $1,730 as a soaker to $8,577 with Aria Elite Ultra-Therapy package. Alternately, the Metro 2 bathtub measures 60.125″ x 42″ x 20″ and ranges from $1,787 as a soaker to $8,985 with Aria Elite Ultra-Therapy package.
The front deck area of the tub on both Metro models is 11” deep, which serves as a convenient transfer surface, making the Metro an ideal choice for multi-generational design. The bather can sit down on the edge and then turn into the tub instead of climbing over the tub wall. The functionality of this wide deck feature is further extended when the Metro is installed with an available coordinating contemporary tub surround that has been designed just for this model. This handcrafted furniture piece complements the tub and provides additional storage and decorative display space recessed in front under the wide deck area. Matching vanities are available in a variety of sizes to complete the ensemble.
The Metro Suite is an outstanding example of how a product can be beautiful and simultaneously serve the needs of many.
