The Orbit sink presents its skilfully crafted white Corian sections, as a neatly stacked cylinder

When each circular compartment of the Orbit sink is swivelled around the pivot point of the unseen vertical spine, a pattern of opposing orbits emerges.

“I like pushing the boundaries. I don’t like straightforward things. I will always avoid the simplistic and mundane,” said Architect and Designer, Alessandro Isola.

But this sink isn’t just fashionable – it’s functional too. The spine 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. Additionally, the three 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.
