Sleek Sinks: Bathroom Trend
New manufacturing technologies coupled with the use of materials such as HI-MACS® and Cristalplant mean that it’s now possible to easily create bathroom fittings in almost any shape imaginable. These sleek, low-lying washbasins feature graceful curves and stretched out forms that turn the washbasin into a sculptural centerpiece.
Created by Phoenix Design for Duravit, the minimalist design of the Puravida washbasin features soft and sensuous lines that give the range a sense of effortless motion. There are nine washbasins to choose from within the PuraVida range, each with a graceful appearance, inviting surfaces and an air of subtle luxury. Shown above is the 700mm PuraVida washbasin without an overflow, with tap platform, deep basin and ceramic covered slotted waste.
The aerodynamic Kea washbasin designed by Marco Piva for Rapsel features an asymmetrical form crafted from white Cristalplant. The sweeping design is enhanced by a swivel mechanism that allows the elongated bowl to be rotated by 180°. The basin can be supplemented with different countertops in tempered colored glass or wood in a variety of finishes.
The ILBAGNOALESSI One washbasin by Italian designer star, Stefano Giovannoni for Laufen is a design classic. Launched eleven years ago in 2002, this sleek line of bathroom ceramics was well ahead of it’s time. The asymmetrical wall mounted washbasin design extends to one side providing a handy surface for soap and other toiletries.
