following the success of his coffee table and couch, alessandro isola has turned his attention to his latest endeavor called ‘orbit sink’. the project presents its skillfully crafted, cool white corian sections, as a neatly stacked, simple cylinder. an opposing disorderly aesthetic is soon created as you swivel each circular compartment around a metal pivot point. this invisible alloy spine also cleverly conceals the drainage system, enabling positioning away from a wall. beneath the top container sits a contrasting chrome ring that functions as a towel rail and soap tray surface. the three rotating pieces beneath, each serve as storage volumes. the option to display pure uniformity, or layering circles that move beyond a natural axis of balance, makes the sink an interestingly irregular bathroom focal point.
