the elegance of the precast concrete design work on hotel remota inspired me to find some more extremely unique concrete designs. pictured here is the erosion sink, designed and fabricated by gore design co. out of tempe, arizona. founded in 2004, gore design co. aims to provide an environmentally friendly alternative to many major interior furniture pieces such as countertops, fireplace surrounds, sinks, and other furniture. the erosion sink features a type of eco-concrete that gore design has been working with on a number of projects. the concrete features the integration of fly-ash and other recycled materials, as well as voc-free sealers and heavy-metal free pigments. in fact, they’ve re-dubbed their concrete recycrete. all things considered this sink is a striking piece. both functional and artistic, the natural aesthetics are calming. i thoroughly enjoy the shallow tapering nature of the topographic lines meandering to and from each other. its design almost suggests the degradation of the concrete sink slab was caused over time with nothing more than the faucet running. the asymmetry of the piece, especially the offset nature of the drain, really make this eco-concrete sink something to behold.
