Abisko Washbasin from Eumar

We all have bathrooms and they all have washbasins connected to the plumbing system through pipes. There is nothing natural about this, but everything is invented by man in order to make our lives easier and more comfortable. However, some visionary people saw in nature the best source of inspiration and this way created special designs that seem closer to nature even if they are in the house. This is Abisko Washbasin from Eumar. It is very special because it resembles so much the natural waterfalls, the way in which water falls from the height and then makes a few slow turns before getting drained under the ground. All these things are suggested by the name of the washbasin – Abisko, which is the name of the Swedish National Park where you can see the most amazingly pure water.

The Swedish designer Johan Kauppi was the one imagining this and turned his idea into something real. So if you use this washbasin the water you use will be poured directly in the drain, without any pipes or other similar things, after following a naturally shaped descending slope. The material used is also natural, as they use cast marble which is then combines with a synthetic binder that allows them to bend it. I don’t know about you, but I love it.
