A bathroom is incomplete without an exquisite washbasin that serves multiple purposes. When buying a basin for your home, you must ensure to keep a tab on its features. It also becomes important to pick a piece that adds aesthetic value to the space. One such washbasin that is practical, durable and ravishing comes from the celebrated Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola.
Dubbed Cenote, the washbasin collection is designed by the female architect for Agape, an Italian brand that has been at the forefront of bathroom architecture for almost fifty years.
Talking about the design, Cenote looks like a small bowl that was used by the prehistoric men living in caves and lairs. In fact, the word ‘Cenote’ in itself is a Mexican word meaning natural underground reservoir which was a source of fresh water. That said, let’s talk about the shape of the basin. It’s circular and curvy as one would expect a bathroom sink to be.
Made of lava stone, this washbasin is way different from usual decorative styles that one would associate it with. Patricia gives it a raw and earthy touch with rough refractory stone exterior finish. However, when it comes to interior, the Spanish architect leaves it pleasantly smooth to the touch and shiny for the eyes, thus polarizing the smooth and glossy inside space with its rough exterior.
