Inspiration is everywhere. For The Aerofoil sink, both the name and its shape were inspired by the aerodynamic beauty and streamlined simpilicity of an aircraft wing.
The initial concept behind The Aerofoil was to create a sink that didn’t look like a sink. This meant eradicating corners, removing all sides and precision-shaping the surface to achieve the correct water friction and surface tension. The second aim was to make it impossibly thin yet strong and durable. Like an aircraft wing, The Aerofoil gives the impression of uniform thinness, yet it is thicker at the wall-affixed end, tapering to half its thickness at the front.
