Native Trails' Santorini Copper Freestanding Tub Winner of 2018 Green GOOD Design Award
Native Trails'™ Santorini copper freestanding bathtub is a winner of the 2018 Green GOOD DESIGN Award, honoring the best in modern green design. Artisan-crafted and forged of high-quality recycled copper, the Santorini soaker tub tells the story of generations of Mexican artisanship. Through thousands of hammer strikes, and over the course of several weeks, the work of Native Trails' master coppersmiths reflects centuries of craft techniques that have been passed down and continually refined. This is the fifth year the company has been selected as a winner in the annual competition, which is sponsored by the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. This year hundreds of entries poured in from two-dozen countries around the globe before the Green GOOD DESIGN Award jury identified the world's most significant examples of sustainable modern design.
