The simplicity of a folded sheet and the purity of stainless steel are the inspiration for Lavandino, designed by Francesca Braga Rosa e Ivano Vianello

The name is deliberately simple, almost naive, easily associated to its function, essential lines, the unusual material. Lavandino is made from a single sheet of stainless steel, cut, folded and welded to create a wall mount sink (Satinato AISI 316/L) with a sharp shape. Absolute geometry even for the rectangular tap and the cylindrical knobs, placed in an asymmetrical position to enhance the sense of the dynamism.

Lavandino (cm 72 x 44,5×7,8 h) seems suspended but hides an advanced technology that allows the sink to integrate to the wall thanks to a frame, which serves as a template for the finishing, and which allows to accommodate the faucet cartridge. Lightness is immediate, the perfect continuity of the material is guaranteed by welding performed in a workmanlike manner, the water is allowed to flow from a cut on the surface that emphasizes the essential language of the project
