ANGOLO FLAT is a stainless-steel wash-hand basin designed for bathrooms with tight space constraints, e.g. for shops and bachelor apartments. Its minimal size realized by a stainless-steel top panel with a round sink allows for effective use of space even in a narrow wash-hand space. The top panel made of a 3 mm thick stainless-steel plate gives the sink both durability and a pleasant appearance.

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2013

  • DEVELOPMENT TIME up to 12 months

  • TARGET REGIONS Asia

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User

  • ASSESMENT CRITERIA Aesthetics, Practicability

The Angolo Flat wash basin is evidence of a very functional, simple and clean design approach. The manufacturing technique, precision and surface treatment of the stainless steel allows this material, which has usually been used for the public realm, to enter the private sphere. The compact volume of the product, which makes it so useful and practical for many applications, has been achieved through basic, but effective, rationalization. This product is a superb example of a combination of minimal design and maximal functionality.
