Intreccio sink, designed by Paolo Ulian of Antoniolupi, is an ultra-light and eco-sustainable marble sink, which weighs only 55 kg and is shaped from an 11 cm block of marble. The cuts are heightened to create concentric rings that give life to a 3-D volume.
The design displays the perfect harmony of nature and technology.
The numerical control processing technology used for the manufacturing of this sink enables a major reduction of raw material waste.
It also allows creating very sheer concentric and light circles that are surprisingly superimposed. These continue to go upwards to show a play of light and shade.
The variation of light on the concave and convex shapes allow the layers to obtain full and empty solely.
The sink has also got praise for its unique design and awarded with the prestigious Certificate of Honor at the XXVI Compasso d'Oro ADI awards ceremony held on September 9th, 2020 in Milan.
