The designer basically took the common basin and re-imagined it a little, enough to create a completely new sink. By simply altering a portion of the basin’s design the sink was given a completely new look. A cut along the body of the piece allows it to tilt and this way it adapts to the user’s height so that children or persons using a wheelchair can use it without problems.

The basin can be positioned to serve either a standing or seated adult or child and it will also be safely secured into place. It does that by rocking around an axis. It’s amazing how such a simple detail can completely change the functionality and the design of an item.

This makes it particularly versatile and allows it to be easily placed and integrated in any type of bathroom.
