Rock.01 is all set to mark its debut at Design Miami 2021. Before you start considering it to be some sort of an album, band or DJ, we would like to inform you that Rock.01 is a limited-edition 3D-Printed Sink. The classy sink is brought to you by Daniel Arsham who in collaboration with Kohler has textured it to perfection.
Daniel’s obsession with sculpture is well known to design fans, so much so that the New York-based artist has opened a collaborative design studio Snarkitecture with architect Alex Mustonen. With sink being no exception, the artist pays homage to the concept of time through this unique design.
The 3D-printed ceramic sink rests against a rock-shaped form cast from brass with a minimalist black tap complementing the overall look. The sink improves the level of graciousness when it comes to your bathroom and kitchen.
As per Kohler, there are a total of 99 limited-edition pieces available and the sink is made of layered vitreous china. It takes about 7.5 hours to make this sink. The effects of time are reflected in the patina of the brass “rock” and achieved through a forced coercion process. The sink looks warm, simple and calm resting atop traditional brass and weighs about 26 kg. Although it’s made using 3-D technology, it looks like a handcrafted piece from skilled artisans.
Arsham’s collaboration with Kohler reflects the company’s long-standing commitment to the arts. Since 1873, Kohler’s mission has been to contribute to gracious living through the highest level of design, craftsmanship, and innovation. Daniel Arsham x Kohler 3D-printed sink Rock.01 will be available for purchase in December.
