the project presents its skillfully crafted, cool white corian sections, as a neatly stacked, simple cylinder. an opposing disorderly aesthetic is soon created as you swivel each circular compartment around a metal pivot point. this invisible alloy spine also cleverly conceals the drainage system, enabling positioning away from a wall. beneath the top container sits a contrasting chrome ring that functions as a towel rail and soap tray surface.
the three rotating pieces beneath, each serve as storage volumes. the option to display pure uniformity, or layering circles that move beyond a natural axis of balance, makes the sink an interestingly irregular bathroom focal point.
