With an inherent passion for water conservation and positively contributing to an ecological future, we at Blu Bathworks® are committed to modern, architectural sustainable design.
Sustainability is an expression of our corporate culture, expressed in our attitude to our product offering as well as our production processes. We continue to evolve our working relationships to continually review and optimize our production processes from an ecology viewpoint.
This passion motivated the brand's designer + founder, Michael Gottschalk, to develop our signature eco-friendly blu∙stone™ material, which - in addition to its low-energy production process & recyclable nature - provides superior water temperature retention, requiring less water consumption for an optimum bathing experience.
Available in a selection of bathtubs, sinks, countertops, backsplashes & shower bases, blu∙stone™ requires less energy to produce than its ceramic counterpart - fired in a kiln at lower temperatures for a significantly shorter timeframe. Further, as a recyclable material, there is limited production wastage - which is good news for the landfill. As with all Blu product, care has been taken to ensure the application goes beyond design, for example, the composition of blu∙stone™ provides superior water temperature retention, requiring less water consumption for an optimum bathing experience.
Our Italian-made tapware & shower systems are designed to comply with CalGreen standards & minimize energy & water consumption without impairing the premium quality of the product or water experience. One innovative aspect in conserving water is the EcoAir system, available in a selection of our hand showers & rain showers.
EcoAir provides an incredible 50% water savings by mixing water with external air particles, simultaneously resulting in a comfortable water jet that promotes deep feelings of well-being. The inner distribution system allows a complete separation of the aesthetic part of the handshower from water - decreasing consumption while performing better even at low pressure!
Electronica digital tapware is another recent innovation in bathroom design that promotes water efficiency, for example, the smart system allows users to preset their preferred combination of temperature & flow and fill quantities for bathtubs, thereby eliminating the necessity to run the water until desired temperature is reached.
Blu Bathworks' Italian-crafted 45º and 51 furniture collections are another example of our sustainable design & production philosophy - created with Idroleb ecological panels with the lowest formaldehyde emissions in the world & designed to coordinate with eco-friendly blu∙stone™ vanity tops.
We believe that our approach to sustainable design enhances the value of the overall product and its usage in peoples' daily lives. And we are proud to feature a selection of sustainable products with longevity in service, that meet or exceed the highest standards, including CalGreen compliant, low flow products, WaterSense compliant and HET toilets and LEED products.
