Organically-Inspired Bathroom Basins

The Kohler 'Petaline' Wash Basin is Crafted from Cast Iron

— April 5, 2016 — Art & Design
At first glance, the Kohler 'Petaline' bathroom basin looks like a piece of organically-shaped crockery, but it is in reality designed just for washing up. Crafted from cast iron, the Kohler 'Petaline' sink features a black enamel finish that gives it a stark yet shiny finished look. As the name would denote, the Kohler 'Petaline' sink is inspired by the organic shape of a petal from a plant or flower.

The Kohler 'Petaline' bathroom basin can be placed on a surface or affixed to a wall to make it suitable for nearly any design aesthetic. The organically beautiful design is set to be made available by the brand in Australia soon, although information about when it will be available in North America remains unknown.
