The Ellipse Sink. Designed and manufactured by Eleek, Inc.
Uncommonly Shaped Kitchen Sink
The unusually shaped Ellipse is a two-sided colander sink: one side “achieves its strainer effect with a slotted floor,” while the other, “drain side is flat for stacking glasses.” At a modest size (Ellipse measures 8 3/8″ H x 24″ W x 15 7/8″ D), this sink is a good choice for small kitchens. It can also be used as an interesting second kitchen sink, perhaps in an island or bar. Besides the beautiful bronze, which has a smooth finish, Ellipse can be treated with artist patinas—oil-rubbed bronze, Masala Red or Golden Amber. And since it resembles an open eye, you’ll always feel that you have company: Ellipse is perpetually watching over you!
About the Manufacturer: Eleek Inc. began in 2000 when designer and patternmaker Eric Kaster joined forces with Sattie Clark. Headquartered in Portland, Eleek Inc. produces lighting, sinks, hardware, and tiles. As a former patternmaker, Eric Kaster knows how to work with wood and metal, since the technique involves using wooden forms (wood positives) to make metal castings. His old-world techniques are evident in all of Eleek’s pieces, which “sometimes feel old, like relics recovered from archeological ruins.” But Eleek also offers simpler, modern products.
