It serves as a reminder of thousands of years of rainfall and melting snow eroding the earth. Perhaps that is the greenest thing about the Erosion Sink by Gore Design.

Every time you use the sink you'll be reminded of the earth's age and our impact on it over time. Gore Design is a company dedicated to sustainability in manufacturing concrete sinks and countertops as well as cabinetry and furniture fabricated of Plyboo and formaldehyde-free products.


Now, great looks and important messages aside: would the "topography" of this sink make it tough to clean?

Oh, I doubt that anyone purchasing that item is cleaning his own sink.

Yup, it would be hard to clean. Even more cool would be if it weathered and eroded in time... !

I can't help but notice the inversion effect in the overhead shot, when the sink is lit from the "wrong" side. :P

I wonder if the matching toilet resembles the Grand Canyon? :P

Perhaps the Berkely Pit might be more appropriate? :lol:

And what about the North Atlantic bath tub? I have heard people complaining about the mid-Atlantic ridge making it uncomfortable.
