Designed by Michael Hilgers, Gus is the ‘little brother’ of our iconic Ray washbasin. Both inspired by contemporary classic furniture to give bathrooms a touch of living room atmosphere. The slim handmade ceramic basin with a hidden siphon is supported by a light see through structure reminding of Gustave Eiffel’s Parisian Masterpiece. Gus washbasin is a perfect piece for small or narrow bathrooms. The metal structure is available chromium plated or coated in white, the washstand’s ceramic comes with the tap hole.
