Alape's New WP.FO Basin
Alape's™ new WP.FO is not a simple basin - it is a delicate workpiece that embraces the corresponding furniture to create a homogeneous unity. With WP.FO, furniture and washstand become an intrinsic work of art inspired by current trends of modern architecture. Based on a concept by Gerhard Busalt, the shape of the homogeneous body - which combines basin, shelf and furniture - reveals influences of modern architecture. WP.FO combines material lightness and functionality into an extraordinary balance. The optimised storage space with hidden drawer runners creates the required bathroom space. The handle-less furniture is equipped with a push-to-open mechanism. Drawers can be equipped with internal drawer dividers, dispenser boxes and shelves. The front of the frame is presented in five silk-matte finishes that were specially developed for WP.FO. The two subtle brown tones - moonstone and shadow earth - integrate perfectly into a quiet living ambiance, whereas the two vibrant tones - grey fossil and aubergine - set accents in the bathroom. Classic white rounds off the color palette. WP.FO is available in two depths - 450 mm for wall-mounted fittings and 500 mm for deck-mounted fittings - and three different widths: 800, 1,000 and 1,250 mm.
