With its strong architectural impact, Acquagrande was one of the first square washbasins and marked the beginning of the company’s drive to shape bathroom forms and lines to create design objects.

This washbasin has become an icon of the contemporary bathroom and geometric rigour, and must be praised for paving the way for many other manufacturers.
