Want to add some Hollywood glamour to your home? Live like the stars? OK, this one is just for fun.

Rapsel, the luxury bath company based in Milan, Italy, recently announced the inclusion of its products—the Lavasca bathtub and Pluviae shower—in a new Disney feature film called Old Dogs. The film stars Robin Williams, John Travolta, Matt Dillon, Seth Greenberg and Kelly Preston. Both contemporary products were created for Rapsel by famed architect and designer Matteo Thun.

Lavasca is an award-winning design and was inducted this year into the permanent collection at The Philadelphia Museum of Art. According to the company, Lavasca, made of titanic resin, is the lightest bathtub in the world, weighing in at less than 100 pounds. The film features the model in a polished white finish; the tub is also made in black matte resin and Portuguese limestone.
