Rethinking the Sink

Sometimes, all it takes is one thoughtful variation to inject freshness into a familiar form. With the Coquillage sink, the faucet has been integrated into the basin; a graceful move when compared to the freestanding pillar or wall-mounted taps that are typically paired with vessel sinks. Turning the bowl so the faucet is closer to the user is a smart move, too. amindesign.de

  1. Ok. I love this idea! Can you flip it for a righty.

  2. That's certainly possible, Laurie. I cropped this picture to zero in on one sink; in the original image, there is another sink installed next to this one in an 'opposing' orientation.

  3. I think I'd like this slightly better if it was all one piece, or at least color. The design of it is way out of this world though. I wish there was more variety from house to house in general; this fixture would definitely contribute.

  4. I believe the sink is available without the chrome 'spigot', plumbtile. That variation does have a sleeker look to it.
