From crisp, classic white porcelain to gleaming lacquered wood, this roundup of cool, contemporary washbasins ranges from the uber-practical (such as the triangular Ice Corner sink from Bastonne, which snugly fits into the corner of your bathroom) to the outlandish (like the Abisko and Kalla, each a sculptural work of art on its own).  Of course, we found a few that fall somewhere in between the two extremes, like the Brillante glass vanity from Lyring, which encases a display shelf unit in a perfect glass box that just so happens to curve into a bowl in the center, beautifully integrating a washbasin into the overall design.  There’s also the stunning blue Murano sink from Hastings, crafted boldly but tastefully from handblown glass; the sublime woodwork of the Belle Wood basin from Mark Horner; and the jarring mineral-inspired selection we found from Mastertecno.  All in all: a stunning array of washroom options that can transform an everyday task like brushing your teeth into quite the experience.
