The aim of the vortex design is to find a new form to influence water flow in washbasins to increase their efficiency, contribute to their user experience and improve their aesthetic and semiotic qualities. The result is a metaphor, derived from an idealized vortex form that signifies drain and water flow which visually indicates the entire object as a functioning washbasin. This form combined with the tap, guides the water in to a spiral path allowing the same amount of water to cover more ground which results in decreased water consumption for cleaning.
