Wave, the marble sink designed by Fuksas for antoniolupi

 

Presented during the Salone del Mobile 2022, Wave is the new freestanding marble sink designed by Fuksas architectural studio for antoniolupi in order to combine the solidity of the material with the unusual lightness of the shape.

Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas explain: “Marble becomes thin. Almost like a blade that tends towards the sky. It bends, bends, becomes as light as a sheet of paper, without changing its nature”.

The sink is solid and sculptural like a monolith of pure Carrara marble, elegant and sinuous like a precious fabric, disruptive and capable of closing itself unleashing all its strength like a wave breaking on the shoreline. The energy of water is evoked and accentuated by the two flaps that do not overlap perfectly at the end, generating a practical support system for hand towels.

The perfectly smooth surface of Wave is the result of the craftsmanship in marble processing and the perfect use of advanced machines, while the natural shades of the material make each freestanding sink unique and unrepeatable, giving it an exclusivity that transfers to the whole environment.
