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.
- 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!
- 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.
- The KUM sink by Nanni Cruciani for Tenda Dorica is suspended in a waterproof lavender MDF frame.
- 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.
- The SONO IO sink by Danilo Fedeli for Tenda Dorica is shaped into an S-curve that forms a shelf below the basin.
- Bath company Sonia creates wall-mounted combination sink/cabinets that work well for small spaces and have a colorful, mod look.
- The Colo Sink by Wachs is a combination dishwasher and sink with a removable dish rack.
- 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.
