Aloha and thank you for asking. That is a custom cast glass art piece from a local artisan in Hawaii. We installed LED lighting behind it which is controlled by a wall switch. The client wanted to effect the vision of the sun setting on a smoggy L.A. day. There is a second art piece installed behind the basin faucet.

Aloha and thank you for asking.
The lower tiles are a polished 12x24 porcelain called "Basalt."
We purchased this through CTM in Los Angeles.
The tile is highly polished and has a 3D look to it. Very pretty. Very interesting.
And the best thing of all, the water spots rub right off without major scrubbing.

Aloha Tyson and thank you for asking,
The fold-down shower seat is part of the Invisia Collection and the wood species is Brazilian Walnut, also known as Ipe. It is a dense tropical hardwood and perfect for this application.
Here is a link to the Invisia Collection: http://www.invisiacollection.com/serenaseat.html
And a couple of photos of this shower seat a year after installation...still looking great!

Seat install - Does the seat have to be mounted to wall studs?

Aloha Geoff and thanks for your question!
Yes, absolutely the seat must be installed into studs. No doubt.
Many times we will add full backing in the range of shower seats and grab bars for future installation as well. This way, our clients may add a seat or grab bar at a later date without much issue.
I think you will find that all shower seats require installation into a stud (or solid backing) to ensure a safe installation.
All the best!

fold-down shower seat material - Shower seat comes in powder coat grey, chrome or nickel plate. Either plate is much more expensive. Which finish did you pick and why? Thanks

Thank you!
You are correct, the Serena Seat has a higher capacity rating which was also a consideration in this project.
I was prepping the home for owner arrival yesterday and snapped this quick photo to show an update 1 year later...still looking great!

Thanks for the photo. We'll be installing 2 of the 18 in. seats side by side in a small 4 ft x4 ft. steam shower. It's good to know the wood is so durable.

Aloha and thank you for asking about this amazing bath; it was a fun project!
There is no marble but here are the included materials:
The floor is a natural stone, black quartzite. The client loves the dark color and the uneven texture. We brushed the tiles that were used in the shower in order to provide additional slip co-efficiency.
The lower walls are a polished porcelain basalt, a dark grey high polished tile.
The upper walls are a honed and filled vein-cut silver travertine.
The accent backlit "sun" is a custom artist's cast glass with LED lighting.
Thank you again for your interest in our project photos :-)

Thank you for the compliment :-)
The floor is a natural stone, black quartzite. The client loves the dark color and the uneven texture. We brushed the tiles that were used in the shower in order to provide additional slip co-efficiency.
If we were to do this all over again, we may have opted for a DalTile porcelain called Era. It comes in a very dark grey/black called Olos and would require much less maintenance than the natural stone. The Era series comes in a polished, matte (unpolished) and structured finish. The matte provides plenty of slip co-efficiency for Universal Design and the structured finish would be excellent for the shower area.
Overall, the natural stone is very nice and the uneven textures are unique and interesting.

I would really like to see a picture that shows the entrance to the shower, is it a roll in, completely flat?

Yes, it is a roll in (no curb).
Here are the only two photos I could find that show the entrance to the shower. I wish their were better ones.
