Cento. Designed by Marc Sadler for Kerasan.
For Italian bathroom fittings company Kerasan, Sadler has created a collection entitled Cento wherein "corners turn seductive." Cento means 100, as with a bill of that denomination--simple, rectangular, and crisp. The Cento Washbasin lets us see the monetary genesis at work.
Clean and streamlined, the rectangular Cento Washbasin is available in one-hole, wall-hung or freestanding models. The largest of these Cento sinks measures 45 x 140, though Kerasan (like many Italian companies) does consider the confines of space, offering sizes in a diminishing scale that can be reduced to as small as 45 x 25. And Kerasan also thinks about those with space to spare, offering a generous double sink version of the Cento Washbasin. The wall-hung model hugs the wall, floating in space like a horizon line flanked by clouds, while the freestanding model rests on slender legs, stretching to the floor like the projections of space needles. The silver crossbar provides an excellent place on which to hang towels--without undoing the spare lines of the Cento design (since everything is tucked beneath). Like all Kerasan products, the Cento Washbasin is constructed of "partly vitreous china and partly fine fire clay," making the bathroom collection sturdy.
