I’ve sometimes wondered why we teach young children about shapes. Is it more important to know the differences between circles, squares, and triangles rather than, for example, sparrows, robins, and geese? What is our culture’s fascination with simple geometry that we prioritize it as one of the first things we teach our kids?
Whatever the cause may be, plumbing supply manufacturer Cheviot has caught on, and has developed their Flow and Flex lines of vessel sinks based on simple, crisp geometric patterns. This eye-catching design is further emphasized by their exceptionally thin rim—the result of years of innovation and research. The same degree of innovation has gone into their finishing process, which utilizes a fine glaze of powdered glass, meaning that an ease of cleaning and a lifetime of durability add to both the Flow‘s and Flex‘s overall appeal. The end result is a sink that grabs attention; not as a result of complicated or outlandish design, but rather because it is so plain, so simple, and so pleasing to the eye.
Perhaps we are obsessed with simple geometry because it was instilled in us at a young age, and teaching our children further perpetuates the cycle. Either way, both the Flow and the Flex lines of sinks are a refreshing breath of much-needed simplicity in our increasingly complicated world.
