Think Of Stone – Birichino is a marble sink designed by Purapietra. The sink looks like a grill and is made from Nero Marquina marble.

Description by Purapietra: The idea came from observing the sea waves breaking into a reef of rocks. If on one hand a gentle and charming dancing enchanted me, on the other hand I was very surprised by the gruff and stubborn attitude of what was to be bent to plastic shapes. So the foamy splash of salty water shines like sparks in the air and falls down smoothly into coarse roars, thus the last hesitant drops dripped from a sink slide on the marble surface to, eventually, fade away.
