More about this basin

The fountain is made in such a way that it fits perfectly in a corner of a toilet area. The diameter of the washing area is approximately 30cm and the stainless steel drain is invisibly concealed in the stone that has been hollowed out under the washing area. The fountain is very easy to assemble due to the simply devised system in which the drain must be incorporated into the wall. This gives the whole a beautiful appearance that, together with a water tap from the wall, gives a very natural look.

The fountain is available in various sizes, such as this big brother, which in turn fits beautifully in a bathroom, for example. Outdoors, this fountain is a very nice addition to a garden house or conservatory.
