Ergonomically Adjustable Sinks

The 'Elena' Adjustable Sink Changes to Suit Users of All Kinds

— September 28, 2017 — Art & Design
Sink designs in public restrooms are often designed with a uniform height level that makes it difficult for those in a wheelchair or who are shorter in stature to use, so the 'Elena' adjustable sink looks to alleviate this problem. Designed by Jingwei Dang, the 'Elena' sink is able to adjust at the touch of a button to the optimal height, whether it is required to be raised or lowered for proper usage.

The 'Elena' adjustable sink also incorporates a hand dryer underneath the basin to make it an all-in-one fixture for public bathrooms without the need to have multiple accoutrements spread out around the space. The sink acknowledges the requirement for better ergonomics in product design for public use items to ensure no one is left feeling left out of the equation.
Trend Themes
1. Ergonomically Adjustable Sinks - Opportunity for innovation in designing adjustable sinks to accommodate users of different heights or abilities.
2. Inclusive Public Restrooms - Disruptive potential to create more inclusive public restroom designs by incorporating adjustable sinks and other ergonomic features.
3. All-in-one Fixtures - Opportunity to optimize space and functionality in public restrooms by integrating multiple features like sinks and hand dryers into a single fixture.
Industry Implications
1. Bathroom Fixture Manufacturing - Bathroom fixture manufacturers can capitalize on the trend of ergonomically adjustable sinks by developing innovative products that cater to diverse user needs.
2. Interior Design and Architecture - Interior designers and architects can embrace the trend of inclusive public restrooms by incorporating adjustable sinks and other ergonomic features in their designs.
3. Restroom Facilities Management - Facilities managers can explore the use of all-in-one fixtures in public restrooms to improve space utilization and user convenience.
