Is this natural stone sink what the bathroom has been waiting for?

Bento Sink
Is the Bento Sink – a sink containing smaller boxes – what the bathroom has been waiting for? Italian company Kreoo thinks so.

Kreoo is an Italian company that makes tasteful furniture in marble. Its latest launch is a bathroom sink inspired by the bento box of the food industry.

The idea of the bento box came from Japan. It is a box containing other boxes that add up to a meal for one person.

The Bento washbasin for Kreoo came from designer Matteo Nunziati. Matteo’s most outstanding residential projects are the Bosco penthouse in Milan, winner of the prestigious RIBA Award for International Excellence in 2018, and a skyscraper penthouse at 432 Park Avenue, New York, that sold for $95million.

The sink has three elements inside the washbasin. The trays are different sizes and removable, so they can be arranged in various configurations. They can be used in direct contact with water. They can be used to put the soap in or store the bathroom accessories, perhaps.

The Benta Sink is currently available in one size only in nine varieties of marble.

Is it just what the bathroom has been waiting for? Perhaps one day all bathrooms will have sinks like this. Let us know what you think. You can leave a comment below.
