CARA / Washbasin

Discipline: Product

“Cara” is a flat washbowl of minimum thickness, a result of Japanese metal craftsmanship. It guarantees great performance in wet areas due to the stainless steel base with a hybrid coating (organic/inorganic) with high hardness and durability. The matte monotone texture adds modern taste to a space, and the open shelf provides a neat storage for bath items. A right-angled bend process was applied during plating to realize a sharp and simple design. Unlike ceramics, high-temperature firing is unnecessary, contributing to reduced CO2 emissions in the manufacturing process.
