#1: Alape Unisono — Steel bathroom basins

German bathroom brand Alape’s bathroom basins are amazingly thin and strong, thanks to their pioneering glassed steel enameling production technique.

Each Alape basin is pressed from a single sheet of steel before being fired in three layers of tough enamel, making them stylish, durable and eye-catching. They’re also available in a variety of finishes from the unique dark iron which changes based on lighting, to bi-colour matte black and white.
