The Asse washbasin is marked by straight lines and surfaces. Taking advantage of a special bending process, the thin yet stable stainless steel plates are bent at a right angle, which makes them join seamlessly to emerge as a bowl of purist appearance. Details such as the drain strainer are integrated invisibly into the washbowl, underscoring the self-contained look of the design. A hybrid coating of organic and inorganic colour provides the material with high durability.
