Lifting Sink


Consisting of three layers of nested metal, Lifting Sink succeeds in adjusting its storage capacity. Users can choose from different metal inlays to form different sized sinks so as to contain different objects. For example, when few things need washing, choose the smallest metal ring to form a small sized sink. Put in this way, things could be easily covered with just little water, and it takes less time to get full cover. Lifting Sink can improve the water utilization rate in the kitchen and raise public awareness of the importance of saving water.

Very ingenious solution of transforming a plain water working area into a kitchen sink with different volumes simply by zooming in and out different basin cascades. The successful combination of materials adds a high quality appearance look to the stainless steel surfaces.
We sincerely thank iF and the sponsors for acknowledging our effort and recognizing our design. We are highly motivated to pursue our dream and achieve even more!
