While some domestic activities are best kept separate, many who might have slept in a room with a sink (obvious exceptions apply) can vouch for the convenience of the unusual chamber utility. Jannis Ellenberger's Private Space I project stages a contemporary bedroom with the inclusion of a well-equipped washbasin.

A beautiful union of simplicity and functionality is expressed in one piece of furniture in particular, replacing the old custom of a bedside pitcher and bowl, it comprises a sink, a countertop and storage. The vanity has a pair of slots through which to hang hand towels and face cloths, it has two little pots for combs and toothbrushes, a place for your soap and a subtle perforated drain below the faucet. Private Space I accommodates other morning and evening rituals with places to hook and fold clothes, as well as a lovely bed in which to sleep.
