Tornado basin stand by ou8nrtist2 Tornado basin stand by ou8nrtist2
This piece is in forged stainless steel.
I originally designed it to support a sink ,but the plumbing would doubtless interfere with the aesthetics to a great degree. There are new plumbing fixtures coming out of Europe currently that are minimal,with a lower profile and do not drop so low beneath the sink as conventional domestic fixtures. That might just be the symbiotic mix to take this prototype forward.
There is a small loop at the end of the tail to put in a screw to secure it to the floor.

This piece is available for purchase.
Please note me for pricing.

Have you considered a piece of square tubing, twisted to interlock with the metal already present, but not touching it, and ending in a spiral shaped drain? Possibly with matching etching/patterning on the inside of the basin? You could round and thread the bottom end to match up with standard size plumbing.

Conventional drains have a trap in them,both for gunk and air,so there are some delicate inner parts that I can't reproduce,but your visual of twisting square tubing is a good aesthetic match...

Maybe put the trap under the floor level?

It's rare but that does work.

I would imagine that the realities of hardware would almost always be an issue-artistic object vs. what's available to make it function. I don't know how you would take a tornado supported sink and then add pipes to it- a tornado with scaffolding? Seems to me in almost every artistic endeavor there's a problem to be solved, whether it's plumbing or that "Oh, crap!" moment...

You're right,
I guess I'm sort of a visual problem solver (or try to be ,anyway).
Often the spatial problem captures my interest and I can't let it go.
This has caused problems for me on more than one occasion...LOL
I'm trying to learn to MAKE SURE I have a paying customer BEFORE I get entranced by "the problem".
