Geometric functionality: Alape’s 2step basin

2step is a basin range designed by Sieger Design. Its name references the basin's geometrical form and functionality.

German manufacturer Alape launched 2step, a basin range designed by Sieger Design. The name 2step references the basin's geometrical form and functionality. Two main features distinguish the steel sink: the narrow basin edge, which is 3mm thick, and the design of the raised tap area. The basin’s depth is split into two different levels, with the main bowl separated from the tap area. This can be used as a shelf for accessories that get wet during use, while the surrounding counter top and furniture remain dry.

2step is available in two installation versions: a built-in basin with a standard basin edge which protrudes 25mm from the counter top, or a flush-mounted installation, where the upper edge of the basin and the counter top material sit side by side to create a harmonious finish, while the seal is near invisible. Depending on the structural setting or personal taste, the tap area can sit to the right, left, or parallel to the wall. The asymmetrical design is available in widths of 525mm and 700mm, while the symmetrical positioning is reserved for widths of 500mm and 600mm.
