We’ve seen a few wood plumbing products in our time, but these from Unique Wood Design in Wrocław, Poland, are exceptional. The company building yachts, boats, and canoes over 30 years ago, and, naturally, they evolved into a producer of handmade wooden bathtubs and washbasins. According to the company, the firm is a network of workshops that collaborate with young designers to make the products with “a combination of carpentry tradition and modern boats building technologies.” Sinks and tubs can be custom-ordered in a variety of species such as American walnut, oak, sapele, ash, wenge, merbau, and meranti. Now, we love the look of these of products, but we’re not sure about mixing water and wood in this manner, especially over a period of time. The company says, however, that it uses a special boat building coating that makes surfaces highly resistant to scratches and water. www.uniquewood.eu.
