8 Out of the Ordinary Sinks

Normally we like a good, basic sink in the bathroom, and we tend to shy away from designs that seem like they could look dated in a few years. Although a couple of these sinks might fall into that category, many of them are smart ideas that grabbed our attention with their unexpected approach to form and/or function.


  1. Marazzi's Hatria Collection Sink is a wall-mounted design for small spaces. Measuring about about 20 x 16 inches, it's coated in platinum!
  2. The Erosion Sink from Gore Design is a sustainably manufactured concrete sink that's designed to mimic the way the earth's surface erodes from rain and snow.
  3. The KUM sink by Nanni Cruciani for Tenda Dorica is suspended in a waterproof lavender MDF frame.
  4. The Crevasse Prep Sink by Kohler is an angled slit in a countertop. Just push a button, and a jet of water rinses prep waste into a garbage disposal.
  5. The SONO IO sink by Danilo Fedeli for Tenda Dorica is shaped into an S-curve that forms a shelf below the basin.
  6. Bath company Sonia creates wall-mounted combination sink/cabinets that work well for small spaces and have a colorful, mod look.
  7. The Colo Sink by Wachs is a combination dishwasher and sink with a removable dish rack.
  8. Designer Jennifer Levy of CAV Design used Xavier Pauchard's Marais Stool as a pedestal for a sink basin, in place of a more traditional pedestal sink.
