Watertable – A Sink Which Changes Its Volume
Watertable is a unique sink designed by Sophie Mensen which changes its depth according to the volume of water. When not using the sink, a basin is created regardless of the amount of water used. The resilient sheet used in this basin allows this basin to grow steadily when water fills up. The sink has a small hole directly under the faucet which drains the water out, allowing the sink to return to its original state of flat surface. The resilient sheet used in the basin creates a physical volume which grows and diminishes when water flows through it. The designer says, “My Watertable is derived on the formlessness of water; a finite thing having an infinite range of appearance or expressions because of its inseparable relationship to other things.” Take a look at the pictures.
