Combining conventional Italian elegance, modern details and a clever optical illusion, this special sink looks more like a three-dimensional digital model or partial sketch than a full-fledged basin system.

The Kub by Victor Vasilev consists of a sliced marble cube anchored to the wall and intersected by a nearly-invisible glass basin, the latter draining into the former.

The water appears from a separate and likewise simple steel tap above, lands in the the basin then drains into the cube, breaking the stages of washing down into distinct interplays between these different constituent forms.

Other cubes can be added in sequence to create shelves and storage alongside the sink system.

Meanwhile, variant designs are also available that extent the same language of materials and forms to larger sinks and basins.
