chic concrete block sink

Could this beautiful sink stand, spotted in tiny photo story about interior designer Abigail Ahern‘s neo-baroque chandelier, REALLY be made of concrete block, one of our favorite building materials? Imagine…For less than the cost of a fiber-board-and-veneer Ikea sink stand, you can fashion one out of block, planning the placement of the blocks like a puzzle.

As we learned from our early post on Marcel Breuer’s concrete block table, there is concrete block and there is concrete block. The ones used for this sink stand are beauties. Check out the possibilities here. We learned a lot from this great “Basic Training” pdf. about concrete block.

    I think you mean Marcel Breuer’s concret block table and not le Corbusiers concret block table?

    Yeah, we do mean Marcel Breuer, from his amazing book Marcel Breuer: Sun and Shadow The Philosophy of an Architect. We just were moving too fast…. Thanks for the catch.

    hmmm: lines are for duty. curves are for beauty.
    this photo strikes me as an esthetic battle (i think the curves are winning…)

    You can give concrete stands and shelves that sand stone look very easily if you have the right tools.
