Dado at Cersaie

 DADOquartz’s Emily and Acanthus at CERSAIE 2010.

Designed by:    Jacques van der Merwe


I am: A Bathtub


About me:

Four baths by Dado were exhibited at this year’s Cersaie, Bologna, Italy 2010, including the Emily and Acanthus baths. This is the 5th consecutive year that Dado’s products were on display at Cersaie.

Every year new products are launched, and new trends established at Cersaie and in 2010 95% of the baths at the fair, were freestanding baths. There were more bathtubs available in stone finishes this year, which is the category Dado manufactures.

The Emily and Acanthus baths were on display by design house: ex-t.

Sculptor, Jacques van der Merwe, designs the baths for Dado.  The Emily has been designed in Australia, and is specifically suitable for luxury baths in spaced-limited apartments.

The freestanding bathtubs usually are the centerpiece of the bathroom and with Dado, you know this is exactly what you’re getting – an original centrepiece for your bathroom.



The baths are manufactured in DADOquartz. 

DADOquartz is engineered stone with a matrix of resin and quartz.

DADOquartz, essential features: full-bodied products, mildew and mould resistance, heat retention, colour stability, non-water absorbency, UV resistance, and high thermal shock resistance. These are the properties behind the 25-year warranty.
