3 Cool New Sinks

By Leslie Clagett

Sink as double-take -- flower pot or pot filler?

1. To a great extent, the appeal of the Potsink (shown above) turns on its relationship to its miniature counterpart. Hung together, the visual pun is immediately appreciated. vitra.com

2. From designer Charles de Lisle and architect Ian Moller comes this clever camouflaged sink.

Drop the lid and it's a handsome built-in sideboard; open it up and it's an eminently serviceable vanity. While the color-blocked cabinet has a bit of a mid-century vibe, the versatility of the piece is wholly contemporary. 

3. Of all the pieces in the Axor Bouroullec collection—tub, shower, shelving, and sink—it's that last element which has most captured my fancy. Handles and spouts can be placed where you want them, arranged on [or off] the different plateaux; the tub shares the same design concept.

Rendered in a glossy mineral-cast material, the basins are offered in two sizes, with one or two integral shelves.hansgrohe-usa.com
