Icon Washbasin from Bathco Company, is Winner in Bathroom Furniture and Sanitary Ware Design Category, 2016 - 2017, in A' Design Award & Competition.

The Bathco design team, in collaboration with the Green Engineering & Research Group at the University of Cantabria, have participated in the production of the innovative product ICON WASBASIN. The ICON is made in materials that offer real benefits to the environment. In particular, the washbasin made with a new generation material: it is created from recycled materials at low temperatures, in a process that reduces the consumption of raw materials, reduces the CO2 emissions and save energy.

The challenge of the de new design was to obtain a product that perfectly combined a cutting-edge design and the use of materials that were totally sustainable and environmentally-friendly. With Icon, this equilibrium was achieved through the development of two pieces that represent an homage to nature. First, the wood of the furniture element was extracted in a totally sustainable way; second, the washbasin is made from recycled materials.
