Timeless geometry: Elegant, minimalist sinks for contemporary spaces

Almost as if they were carved out of stone from an ancient city, the Nabatei basins by Antoniolupi epitomise timeless beauty, minimalist design and geometric precision.


The stylish Nabatei washbasin line is the latest offering from the renowned Italian design house Antoniolupi. This collection, designed by AL Studio, celebrates the variety and innate beauty of natural stone, marble, and glass, while its clean, geometric lines and shapes evoke the precision and order of ancient architecture.

The Nabatei collection comprises three countertop basins—square, rectangular, and oval (only made of Cristalmood and Icemood) variants—that feature a wide selection of materials and are enhanced by colour variations that cannot be replicated. These features make these washbasins a harmonious fit in any bathroom setting and easy to match with any of the brand’s furniture.

Essentiality and precision in geometric forms

With a smooth and finely finished surface, the Nabatei Square basin presents itself as an graceful yet sturdy cube. Much like its rectangular equivalent, its simplicity blends in with any type of interior design, granting the space an enduring sense of sophistication.

Both the square and rectangular variants are characterised by their geometric precision, with a minimal perimeter edge that provides ample room for the basin itself. It is this minimalistic approach to form that makes the Nabatei basin a striking addition to any bathroom.

Each shape in the Nabatei collection tells its own story, and this remains true for the Nabatei Ovale. Reflecting the harmonious flow of nature, the oval design stands out with its soft and rounded contours, slender sections and minimal thickness, evoking a sense of lightness. This sophisticated piece comes in a variety of colours and is available in both Cristalmood and Icemood finishes.

Freestanding and supported variants

Nabatei offers versatility in its installation, whether hung from walls, positioned on shelves, or suspended from furniture, each option allowing for the creation of distinctive micro-architectural features. With meticulously considered proportions, refined material selections, and intricate detailing, these installations exude sophistication and style.

In the freestanding version, the substantial volume of the Nabatei sits on the floor, while the accompanying shelf can either hold taps, otherwise placed on the wall, or serve as a convenient surface for everyday items.

A timeless tradition

The Nabatei collection celebrates the creativity, innovation and distinctly Italian style that are the cornerstones of bathrooms designed by Antoniolupi. For more than seventy years, the brand has stood out in the design and manufacturing of bathroom furniture, both in Italy and abroad.

Allowing individuals to express their personal style, the Antoniolupi collection offers a truly “tailor made” approach to bathware design. This range provides a bespoke solution for the modern bathroom by providing plenty of options for customising materials, finishes, and colours.
