DZINE, a high-end interior design store at 128 Utah St. in SoMa, is now carrying a new bathtub made by Italian-based manufacturer Boffi. The Iceland Bathtub, which was designed by Piero Lissoni, is a monoblock tub in white Cristal Plant with waste-drain, siphon and overflow. It's 71.25 inches in length, 35.5 inches wide and 18 inches in height.

Each of the tub's fittings is in chromium plated brass.

Cardenio Petrucci, DZINE's owner, said the tub's varying dimensions are what make the tub unique.

"It goes from thin in the center and then gets wider around," he said. "In my opinion, the beauty of the tub is its shape, which is beautiful, and the difference in thickness all around the edges."

The Iceland Bathtub is priced at $12,870.
