Paolo Ulian Designs a Pixelated Sink for Antonio Lupi
What do you get when you combine an ancient material with the building block of digital imaging? Pixel, a freestanding sink by Paolo Ulian for Antonio Lupi. Using the most basic element of electronic display as the paradigm, the designer mapped out an orthogonal grid to surround a cylindrical volume. The concept materialized in a single block of Carrara marble, hand-carved with all the variations implicit in stone, making each unique. You can keep the mosaic intact or personalize it by chiseling pieces away, so the surface better resembles its namesake. Equipped with floor drainage unit, it’s 33 inches high and 18 around.
