Eclectic energy

To locals, Rio is fondly known as ‘Cidade Maravilhosa’ (Marvellous City). At night, the city comes alive with the vibrancy of fun, music and dancing. Brazilians are known for their passion and for embracing life. The fusion of Latino cultures creates the lavish colourful energy found in the city.

The edgy and contemporary design of the Rio freestanding bathtub embodies the liveliness of the city. This glamorous bath will add a lively atmosphere to any bathroom space. The Rio is the bathtub of choice for homeowners who embrace style and sophistication, but have resolved to not take life too seriously. The model offers an eclectic influence, without compromising on the elegance and style that has come to be expected of a DADO bathtub.  Rio’s lifestyle is all about enjoying every moment – and that is the desired experience that the Rio freestanding bathtub delivers on. At the end of the day, a marvellous bathing opportunity awaits – re-energising you for a night of dancing.

Relaxing rhythm 

Tapping into the rhythm of relaxation after a long night or busy day, is an art. This is where Rio de Janeiro surprises with a balanced and laid back lifestyle. Embracing a carefree attitude, relaxation becomes important amid a bustling and frenetic city. Strolling the beaches, sipping Caipirinhas, playing football on Ipanema Beach or taking a trip up Sugarloaf Mountain will channel a much needed relaxing rhythm into your life.
