Italian fixtures manufacturer Antonio Lupi Design has introduced a new Corian sink that is inserted into the wall cavity and is visible only by a sheet of glass that protrudes from the surface.
This sink is part of the new design concept where the product is a functional element as well as an artistic expression.
“The wall becomes the container that houses the sink: perfectly integrated into the wall, blending together and extracting only what’s necessary,” the company says.
Unlike a traditional sink that either hangs from the wall or sits in or on a vanity, the Battigia sink is stuccoed, plastered, and painted like the rest of the surface where it has been inserted. The unit can be dressed up with white and blue led lighting, and the faucet can be incorporated in the wall structure. The inclined part—the element that is visible to the eye—can be glass, wood, Corian, or marble.
“The extreme minimalism and the effect of the light are its striking characteristics, differentiating Battigia from any other sink on the market,” the company writes.
