The biannual design and crafts magazine featuring remarkable stories about ordinary things returns with its fourth instalment – this time dedicated to the sink. An object that speaks volumes about who we are and how we live, the sink’s many alluring manifestations are featured here in a variety of ways. Some surprising sink typologies make an appearance, from inox sinks to kommunalka sinks, plus specialised sinks for pathologists, babies, and more. Inside, a short story by prize-winning author Kira Wuck, a series of photos of stainless steel sinks by Scheltens & Abbenes, writings about kitchenettes, and an intriguing photo essay about Suriname Jungle Sinks by Viviane Sassen.
