Vertical Basin / household utensils

Vertical Basin
Vertical Basin

In daily life, basins are often used as water containers to wash clothes, and face, etc, which is convenient for us. However, basins are bacteria-infested for the impossibility of drain. Our point of this design is to keep the basin clean while increasing functions.
To make the basin vertical can not only decrease its exposure to dusts but also make it drain well.At the same time, the vertical structure can reduce the size of the basin which can get rid of the inconvenience of taking water in a narrow washbasin.
