french designer gwenole gasnier has conceived ‘un lavabos’, a sink that can adapt to everyone. the common basin has been re-imagined with a simple alteration to accommodate all walks of life – a cut along the body of the piece to allow it to tilt according to the user’s height. by rocking around an axis, the design can be positioned to cater for a standing and seated adult or children, and subsequently locked to secure into place.

  • i think it was part of the design. when it is tilted, water builds up because the drain is too high, then you stop the water and push it back, drain the water, and get a killer forearm exercise all in one. clever designers
