This is something I have not seen before, and I thought it was so cool it deserved a post. This is one of those design decisions you make when you really want to be unique. This is a European style washing station, and I think it is very interesting. If you look closely you can see that it has a drain, so this is designed to function just like a conventional sink. They have made it visually like the washing stations of old wherein you filled a bowl with water and washed from it. This is a modern spin on an old world design.
