The Gwenole Gasnier 'Un Lavabos' Design Accommodates All Heights

The 'Un Lavabos' sink by Gwenole Gasnier boasts a design that takes different heights into consideration.

The population of people under 4 foot does not just include children -- the wheelchair-ridden are short on height as well. This issue becomes a factor during everyday activities like hand-washing, where sinks are often too high to comfortably use. This design by Gasnier takes such situations into account as the sink has a portion of its front base cut out. This allows it to easily tip forward, offering up a lower edge. The front lip is tall enough to stop water from overflowing, but gives the perfect alternative for those who don't have that extra boost.

The Un Lavabos is a must-have for any family with a roster varying in age or height. Stats for Transformational Tilted Sinks Trending: Older & Mild
