Marble is probably the last material that comes to mind when considering a DIY project, but Paolo Ulian's Pixel Basin is a stone sink that encourages active participation in its design. The cylindrical basin comes with hundreds of cubes that stick out from its base, and consumers can chip those cubes away with a chisel to create pixellated graphics on its surface.

Part of the appeal of the Pixel Basin is thus the experience it offers (as opposed to the pure aesthetic value alone.) Made out of supple Carrara marble, the Pixel Basin offers consumers the unique opportunity to actually carve something out of marble — a material that even professional sculptors might not get the chance to work on over the course of their careers.
