Lap Plus washstand features a basin that boasts a spectacular visual effect, all while creating a minimal yet functional bathroom design solution. Concentric circles ripple out in ellipse formation echoing the oval lines of the basin, creating a pure optional illusion. “The sink is extremely functional due to the large surface area around the basin and the raised edge which prevents spillage. The radiating lines add to the fluidity of the form", says Karim. The basin is fashioned from Vetrofreddo, an innovative material patented by Glass Design and composed of glass pigments and resins.
