The white monolithic feel of Aquagrande washbasin somehow resonated with the image of a tofu block. Not only they look alike but they are similar in a sense that both are nice and cold to touch. Tofu is often produced with a fabric filter whose surface texture gets transcribed on it. More of its character unveils when the texture is seen in water and I felt this relationship was also something interesting.

Following such thoughts I decided to apply a fabric texture on the top surface of the washbasin.
