SLIDER / kittchen and washstand


In Japan, most of small apartments do not have an independent washbasin. In many cases, therefore, a kitchen sink is used in place of it. However, most people using a sink as a washbasin cannot take care of their skin and dry their hair sufficiently. Also, they are unhappy because they have to brush their teeth in a kitchen sink and cannot use it as a washbasin when dishes are in it. Hence, I would like to propose a product we can wash our face and cook comfortably in the same place. To change a sink to a washbasin with a moving plate would make it possible.
