5 Favorites: Architect-Designed Bathroom Sinks

Julie Carlson July 18, 2013

Did you know that Italian architect Gio Ponti designed an elegant washbasin for the Palazzo Montecatini? And that it’s in production, courtesy of Rapsel in Italy? I didn’t, and now I’m imagining excuses for a bath remodel. Here’s a roundup of five architect-designed sinks:

Montecatini Wash Basin by Gio Ponti

Above: The most elegant washbasin we’ve seen: The wall-mounted Montecatini by Gio Ponti is available in titanic resin or in ceramic. Note the drain located to the right of the basin; pure genius. For information, go to Rapsel.

Above: Italian-born, London-based architect Claudio Silvestrin designed the “austere but not extreme” Le Giare collection for Ceramica Cielo.

Above: Architect Philipp Mainze’s waxed European oak components are available through e15.

Above: Hard to resist: the Ottocento Sink by Benedini Associates echoes the lines of traditional washbasins. Go to Agape for dealer information.

Above: Designed by Andrea Morgante, the Nivis Washbasin for Agape features a recessed soap holder.
