LIFT – A height adjustable mechanism that combines a sink and shower
Movable furniture conceptions have always enticed us with their multi-purpose credentials. The very same functional scope is now exhibited by the LIFT, a movable sink and shower combo for our bathrooms.
Conceptualized by Polish designer Marta Szymkowiak (who also brought us the Ro Table), the LIFT can be used as a conventional sink for washing our hand and face. However, its height is totally adjustable, thus allowing it to easily slide along a vertical post fixed to the wall.
Now, there is a separate shower component beneath the sink section. So, when we raise LIFT’s height over our head, we can use it as a comfortable shower. The LIFT’s height can also be lowered for the children (as a low height sink) or when we need to clean our legs and feet (as a low height shower).
According to the designer, this inherent flexibility in usage will be partly achieved by the combination of two different taps, placed above and below the washbasin. The working scope will additionally comprise of a special system of water pipe and drain pipe, both of which will be integrated with the lifting mechanism.
So, at the end of the day, the ambit is all about multi-functionality. But the best part about the LIFT is that it breaks all rules of conventionality. And it does so with its own conscientious essence that caters to different types of users as well as different types of uses.
