Basin / Ideal Standard

Together with Helen Hamlyn of the Royal College of Art in London, Tomek Rygalik did some in-depth research on the needs of extreme users. By studying the way that consumers use bathroom facilities, the unit was actually created in collaboration with potential users. The concept comprises a compact basin which doubles as a vanity table complete with a mirror system and a fully adjustable tap with a flexible spout that can be used to facilitate hair washing. The wall mounted mirror is illuminated and incorporates a digital display and a bluetooth receiver connected to a seat in front of the unit, which is designed to measure body weight. The hand held mirror is held by a magnet onto a smaller magnifying mirror and appears to effortlessly float in mid-air.
