The inspiration for the creation of this sink emerged from the research of architectural forms and geometric volumes.
It was fundamental to make the dish drying area more practical without neglecting the aesthetic part.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Irresistible and versatile, born from the combination of a dream bowl and a multifunctional rack. It is complemented with a retractable tap, a rectangular valve - with an extractable cover - and overflow. Its majestic look is enhanced by the 40mm height of the bowl creating an alternative design. Our offer is enriched by a dishwashing supporting area that adds practicality and glamour. A flexible solution that will help organize and store the wet dishware in an extremely functional way.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The user can wash the dishes and put them on the draining rack that is embedded in the sink. This way he will not need to buy a separate drainer to complement the bowl. The incorporation of the draining rack next to the bowl allows the surplus waters that flow from the dishes, to go directly into the sewer, facilitating the day-to-day usage. The 40mm frame makes the product different and prevents water from splashing to the outside of the working area by confining the water to the sink.
