Beneath the Surface

There have been houses that are nothing more than a glass outline on the landscape, gossamer bridges that appear to be spun from silk, and planes as slender as arrows. So why not an equally sleek bathroom sink? Enter Betty Blue, a washstand by Sieger Design that seems to be merely a Parsons table with an arched spout but actually features a thin channel that siphons water into hidden plumbing. Manufactured by Alape and now available through AF New York, Betty Blue is a sublime reminder that minimalism is always more complex than it seems.
