Designer Sophie Mensen has created a sink that is formed when used, and flat when not.

"My Watertable is derived on the formlessness of water; a finite thing having an infinite range of appearance or expressions because of its inseparable relationship to other things."

"With my Watertable I want to let the water's attributes to create its own sink. When standing in front of the faucet a basin is created regardless of the amount of water used."

"The resilient sheet allows this basin to grow steadily larger by its ever-changing volume creating a physical volume which can be observed as it grows and diminishes."

"A small hole directly under the faucet drains the water slowly away, allowing the sink to return to a flat surface awaiting to be filled again."

Watertable is made of stainless steel and a resilient sheet.
