Designer Sophie Mensen about project:
My Watertable is derived on the formlessness of water; a finite thing having an infinite range of appearance or expressions because of its inseparable relationship to other things.
With my Watertable I want to let the water’s attributes to create its own sink. When standing in front of the faucet a basin is created regardless of the amount of water used. The resilient sheet allows this basin to grow steadily larger by its ever-changing volume creating a physical volume which can be observed as it grows and diminishes. A small hole directly under the faucet drains the water slowly away, allowing the sink to return to a flat surface awaiting to be filled again.
This watertable is intended for washing oneself in a exclusive semi public area.
