The origin / washstand

The origin
The origin

Water lost its original appearance due to mankind. The river that used to flow for the eternal time is no longer a living existence. Form objects soon have to keep the duties of formless water.
'The origin' is a washstand which derives from the original form of water. When the little stone is lifted up, water flows out to the sink like water in spring. It moves along the curved line and finally reachs the new space.
We can feel the great nature just in our small bathroom.
