Italian designer Giulio Gianturco's washbasin for Makro, concealed in a wooden box is the kind of thing that will give guests a pleasant surprise when the lid is opened.
The minimal wooden case belies a fully functional sink, complete with taps, a mirror and magnifying glass, shelves, and small drawer and a light. Then when it's closed you can take it on the road or the boat.
