Add a touch of natural elegance to your washroom with Alegna Wooden Bathtubs ($TBA). Thanks to the company's experience building yachts, the tubs feature smooth, seamless, organic lines that are well protected thanks to a highly water-resistant varnish that coats the surface, guaranteeing that they'll provide optimal service for years to come. A number of designs and wood choices are available, and if those suit you, they'll custom build a special tub out of basically any wood you choose.
What can't be improved by making it out of carbon fiber? We've seen everything from car hoods to iPad cases made out of the stuff, but we may have found an answer to our question in the Corcel Carbon Fiber Bath Tub ($TBA). A symbol of opulence equal to the gold toilet, this carbon fiber tub sports a sleek, streamlined shape, is best matched with a modern, standalone faucet, and may/may not come from space and make racecar noises, as the movie suggests. Limited to just 51 units worldwide. [via]
To kick off the launch of Uncrate Issue 05 and the return of our favorite not-smartphone, the Punkt MP02, we've partnered with Punkt, Grand Classics, and Mark Ronson to host a VIP screening of 1983's The King of Comedy, staring Robert De Niro. Personally selected by Mark Ronson, the film is a timely choice given its direct influence on this month's release of Joker, and as De Niro also appears in Joker as homage to his character in The King of Comedy. On October 16th at the Public Arts venue, at New York's Public Hotel, a select group of guests and friends of Mark Ronson, Punkt, Grand Classics, and Uncrate gathered for the screening and cocktails. Punkt, maker's of minimalist technology, chose to partner with Grand Classics on this screening due the increasingly frustrating effect of smartphones on the film community. Often used to snap pictures that leak a film's plot details well before release, smartphones have become a drag on sets around the world. Punkt's MP02 phone, a camera-less work of art, fixes not only this issue but allows anyone to disconnect from the distracting while remaining connected via a good old fashioned phone call or basic text message. Animoji's need not apply.

The 19-69 brand was birthed in an effort to bottle counterculture movements from the past. Over the course of two years, the brand went through an exhaustive creative process with artisans in Scandinavia, France, and Italy before launching their fragrances in Paris. Each scent is inspired by an era, culture, or setting and the music and trends that help shape them and brought to life in the names, packaging, and the fragrances themselves.
