Callas Washbasin reinvents the look of the pedestal sink

Over the years, there has been a growing interest in bathrooms that place an emphasis on traffic flow, so many homeowners have skipped a bathroom vanity and gone with a sink and medicine cabinet combo instead. One of the most dynamic new options on the market is the Callas Washbasin envisioned by Italian industrial designer Vincenzo Catoio, according to

The basin features a dramatically sloping design that vaguely resembles the shape of a pedestal design with an elliptical twist that sets it apart. The sink is made with a unique material called Exmar, a synthetic substance that can help to insulate water and keep it warmer for a longer period of time.

Additionally, the piece is available in vessel sink designs that can be mounted onto an existing vanity with ease. Whether placed against a neutral backdrop or a selection of bold hues, the Callas Washbasin illuminates the future of bathroom design.

With the growing interest in vintage designs, many manufacturers are going for their own reinvention of classic bathroom accessories. Which do you prefer - the modern Callas Washbasin or the traditional pedestal sink?
