pretty in prison

dezeen_Pretty-in-Prison-by-The-Practice-of-Everyday-Design-2The panel behind this stark matte steel sink has a patch in the centre that’s been polished to shine like a mirror. Called Pretty in Prison, the piece by Canadian studio The Practice of Everyday Design is made of stainless steel, selectively polished by hand so that no two sinks look the same.

“The idea was to give it a sense of time, as if someone had sat there every day scrubbing the surface until it was so clean it became a mirror. The final effect is also almost as if the sink is covered in condensation and someone wiped just one area clean to see themselves.” ~ Antoine Morris | Source: Dezeen
