The Origin

Washstand

제작년도: 2007


The Nothing Design Group is a group of new Korean designers, directed by Koo Jin-woog. They create poetic and narrative designs that playfully address the relationship between people and their environment. Inspired by oriental philosophy, their work explores formless content: how ‘nothing’ can be designed into something?

 

‘The Origin, Washstand’ (2007) is a wash basin based on the source of a river and the way it flows into a lake. A small cobblestone blocks the source, which starts to spout water meandering down to the basin when the tone is removed. Then, the cobble can double as a plug for the sink.
