Freestanding and built-in bathtubs; Solid Surface
My name is Rafał Łukawski. I am a co-creator of the Luxum® brand.
The idea for the company mature for years. At the base was a practice that turned into a passion for creating and loving beautiful things, the need to search for good design, expressed in original forms and reluctance to mass production. Luxum® has the ambition to offer avant-garde, designer bathroom and interior furnishings. The company also does not avoid unique but classic designs. Personally, from the very beginning I deal with and take care of the bathtub production department and the technology of the leading, best materials used in their production.
Bathtubs are an inseparable element of a well-equipped, luxurious bathroom. That is why Luxum® creates modern, unique, timeless bathtubs with harmonious proportions or unusual forms, sharp, minimalist, cubist and determined lines, expressing abstract thinking about the beauty of applied art. However, there are always bathtubs that people remember and use with pleasure.
These are the only modern free-standing and built-in bathtubs in Poland.
designed and created on the universal principle of co-creation. In Luxum® , bathtubs are usually built in individual, unique pieces, on individual order. The Luxum® designers co-create the bathtubs directly with the client or the architect of his choice. This ensures that the form is perfectly in line with the actual needs of the users.
Despite the fact that the manufactory has evolved over almost 20 years of development, it has not lost the spirit of artistic craftsmanship. The most modern digitally controlled 3D machining centres perfectly support the best professionals in the country, who form and finish each of the bathtubs manually. To the youngest generations of enthusiasts of modern crafts, I pass on the acquired knowledge, but I still try to personally supervise all stages of the creation of each bathtub. Then I am sure that the bathtub ending up in your bathroom is an exact reflection of the needs, expectations and fulfillment of dreams of an ideal bathroom.
When looking for bath shapes and forms, the Luxum® design designers recommend solutions that emphasise the status and complement the bathroom in a coherent way. What is more, they will also show the refinement of the Solid Surface material.
We discover what is most beautiful about Solid Surface composite materials, which are used to create modern free-standing, built-in or floor-mounted bathtubs. As well as those that are part of a luxurious bathroom and bath room with a home SPA. From impeccable purity of white to a wide selection of homogeneous pastel colours in almost a full range, to various fantasy patterns of natural stone and abstractions. Unique possibility of finishing in a traditional gloss or in a modern matt finish (satin matt).
The great advantage of modern composite materials Solid Surface is their unique ability to produce a luxurious bath, sanitary equipment and many finishing elements in the bathroom, with 100% hygienic, perfectly smooth and extremely durable surface.
Bathtubs Solid Surface
are unique and desirable because of their properties to maintain the heat of the water. And also the possibility of repeated, properly lifelong regeneration and nobility of touch. Thanks to this extraordinary property, you do not have to worry about the durability of the bathtub. It is preserved forever. Composite bathtubs made of Solid Surface: Corian, Staron, Krion, Kerrock, Cristalplant, Cristalstone, GFK Luxum are perfect for modern as well as typically classic private bathrooms and luxurious hotel and office bathrooms. Not only my personal guarantee, but also my long-term guarantee convince me that Solid Surface bathtubs are the best choice. No other material is so good for the production of sanitary equipment. Acrylic, steel, cast iron, stone or conglomerate bathtubs give way to aesthetics and utility properties and the possibilities of creation of Solid Surface bathtubs.

Division of bathtubs according to form:
– rectangular bathtubs
– square bathtubs
– round bathtubs
– asymmetric bathtubs
– elliptical bathtubs
– oval baths
– atypical bathtubs
Division of bathtubs by material:
– acrylic baths
popular, cheap bathtubs, warm to the touch, of various shapes, can be equipped with hydromassage systems, very light, unfortunately not durable, susceptible to greying, scratches and cracks. They are available as stand-alone and built-in bathtubs, also in large sizes and as double bathtubs. Specialists do not recommend letting them into the floor.
– steel and cast iron bathtubs
available in different price ranges, extremely resistant to scratches and dirt, very durable, easy to clean, have limited shapes, are cold and not very pleasant to the touch. Steel bathtubs are rather not available as stand-alone bathtubs, but as built-in bathtubs or floor-mounted bathtubs. Cast iron bathtubs are very resistant to damage and possible discolouration or stains, but they are also very heavy and are currently difficult to reach.
– stone bathtubs
made of low absorbency stones such as marble or granite, less frequently made of other stones. They have limited shapes, are very cold and heavy. Often difficult to keep clean. Sensitive to assembly and operating errors.
– conglomerate bathtubs
bathtubs with a high degree of hygiene, elegant, easy to clean. They can take different forms, but are limited by wall thickness and heavy weight. They rarely occur as large bathtubs or double bathtubs or multi-person bathtubs. Few conglomerate bathtubs are available in whirlpooled and matt structured versions. However, they can be in a different colour than standard white. Their disadvantage is susceptibility to cracks and cavities caused by the impact of a hard object (e.g. a bottle of perfume falling from a worktop or a shelf). They take away the heat from the water, causing the need for a topping up of hot water. They may appear as matt, but only in the best manufacturers who have mastered the technology of obtaining aesthetic matt surfaces.
– plastic and acrylic bathtubs
cheap economic bathtubs. Their advantage is that they are cheap and very light, lighter than acrylic. They are suitable for campsites, caravans, etc. This is where the advantages come to an end. They have controversial opinions about durability. In fact, they are difficult to repair, even temporarily. They come in a glossy structure.
– glass bathtubs
modern, luxurious glass bathtubs manufactured by a small number of factories or large factories, but in limited series. Glass bathtubs are a unique aesthetics and depth of color and the possibility of obtaining interesting shapes. Glass bathtubs are limited in size and are cool to the touch, poorly maintaining the warmth of the water. They have excellent aesthetic qualities, but are very difficult to keep clean and not necessarily resistant to scratches and minor bruises. They are most often used as stand-alone bathtubs.
– wooden bathtubs
mostly luxury bathtubs. They can have different shapes, but most often they are free-standing, oval bathtubs. Made by good manufacturers they are elegant and durable. Their weight is acceptable. They require a lot of attention when it comes to care, cleaning and maintenance. Damage or scratching the surface of the bathtub, which is not 100% waterproof wood, can cause serious damage or even damage to the bathtub. The grain and colours determine the rest of the bathroom arrangement. Wooden bathtubs are warm and pleasant to the touch. According to specialists from the modern bathroom furnishing industry, besides Solid Surface bathtubs, wood bathtubs are the most luxurious and noteworthy ones, except where the bathtub is used every day or there is hard water. There are manufacturers of wooden bathtubs that offer customised bathtubs. Wooden bathtubs are available in both high-gloss and modern versions. Matt wooden bathtubs are considered perishable due to the specificity of matt varnishes and protective resins.
– bathtubs made of architectural concrete
Concrete bathtubs are avant-garde and new among the luxury bathtubs. These bathtubs have a large group of supporters who prefer strict industrial style and minimalism. Concrete bathtubs in the technology of traditional polished concrete, apart from interesting aesthetics, characteristic for architectural concrete, have a very high weight and limited form. They are available as stand-alone bathtubs or floor bathtubs. As an alternative to the typical traditional concrete bathtubs, lightweight architectural concrete bathtubs Luxum® are an alternative. Luxum® concrete bathtubs are lightweight, aesthetic and durable. In any shape, size and many available shades and colours of concrete. Even bathtubs with a thin edge!
Luxum® bathtubs made from lightweight architectural concrete are manufactured individually to order. Light concrete bathtubs are the patented Luxum® production method for this type of bathtub.
