One of the most relentless trend of the last few years seemed to be the tabletop washbasin. Most of my customers ask for this type of washbasin and I guess this is because people think the undermount basin is too old-fashioned

Today I want to demonstrate that for a “design bathroom” you don’t have to choose a tabletop basin, but the solutions are many more and very interesting.

I’ll take inspiration from the vary composition exhibited at Ideagroup and ISH 2019, to demonstrate that the possibilities are many more than the ones the we imagine.

1. Drop-in basins

Dogma is the line that relates the industrial style with the research of luxury. The possible combinations are numerous, starting from the modules of the piece of furniture to the finishing.

In this elegant marble-looking composition, Ideagroup shows a cabinet sink with integrated basin: observing carefully you’ll notice that the bottom of the basin is composed by four wedge, which allow to the water of flowing down and not to remain at the bottom.

Still in the Cubik collection, Ideagroup suggests a version of the integrated lavabo made of aquatek, much softer to the view and to the touch. It’s suitable for the ones who are looking for the design, but who don’t want to renounce to the comfort of the natural lines. An impressive suggestion, which can be sinuous and delicate.

For sure, it’s an impressive solution, the tabletop basin strikes the eye, while emerging from the piece of furniture. Anyway, I hope you understood¬† this is not the only solution.
