The Orbit Sink first presents its skilfully crafted, cool white Corian sections, as a neatly stacked simple cylinder.
This uniquely designed bathroom fixture is yet another testament to the boundless creativity of Italian architect and designer Alessandro Isola. You may remember his Torque deskfrom our earlier features, which I described as an “evocative piece of art and design”. Well, the orbit sink carries on this trend, by forgoing convention and normalcy for a sense of dynamism and audacity.
Here’s a description as seen on his website, “An opposing disorderly aesthetic is soon created as you swivel each circular compartment around a metal pivot point. This invisible metal spine also cleverly conceals the sinks drainage, enabling positioning away from a wall. Beneath the top sink circle sits a contrasting chrome ring that functions as a towel rail and soap tray surface. The 3 swivelling circles beneath, each serve as storage compartments. The option to display pure cylindrical uniformity, or stacking circles that swivel beyond a natural balancing point, makes the Orbit Sink an interestingly irregular bathroom focal point.“
