Glacier Sink / Glacier Sink

Glacier Sink
Glacier Sink

Glacier sink is a sink to encourage people to save water, at the same time it gives self-consciousness to people.
Sink it self has a shape of a glacier and when it is being used the water level rises as if the earth is flooding due to the global warming. It has a guide line to show an appropriate amount of water to fill. The amount of water looks large when it is poured in the glacier sink but compared to other sinks it stores lesser amount of water. Because of this
illusion people will naturally save water usage and this is the greatest distinctive feature about the glacier sink.
