The GEM marble washbasin by Meneghello Paolelli Associati

Washbasins usually have a series of standard and versatile designs that most people opt for. However, for those who want something different and unique, there are other options as well and they can be really surprising. This is the GEM washbasin and it’s just one example. It was designed by Meneghello Paolelli Associati for Ypsilon.

GEM is a freestanding washbasin made of marble. It was crafted from a single block of marble that has been veined by nature. It’s definitely a unique piece that will certainly become a star and ac accent piece in your home. Seen from a distance, the washbasin seems to be very deep. In fact, it’s not deeper than the usual basin. The marble was only slightly carved to form a whole on the upper part. The rest is still a big block of untouched marble.

Not only that the washbasin has an unusual design, but the fact it has been crafted from a single marble block makes it even more interesting. Moreover, the natural shades and veins are unique elements that can’t be recreated. The GEM washbasin is a very beautiful piece, one that would look exquisite is a modern or contemporary home. It has an elegant and very charming look and a design that allows it to be versatile and to be combined with a diversity of different styles, colors and textures.
