Freestanding washbasins: the new trend

Contrary to popular belief the bathroom environment requires the same attention to design and attention to detail as a living room or any other room in the living area.














The freestanding washbasin, or free-standing, asserts its personality in the world of interior design. Its slender shape and sinuous lines make it look like a sculpture that gives a strong identity to the bathroom.

The free-standing washbasin in the picture above has a contemporary style which is characterized by a rational design, which enhances the geometry of the circle declining it into a totemic element. This design element for the bathroom, eccentric in name and in fact, creates a simple dialogue between the different materials that make up the washbasin, such as Carrara marble, wood, metal etc, textures and tactile suggestions that give great character to the free-standing sink.
