About Me

Black brings to a bathroom or powder room space a striking
sensuality, sense of luxury and a strong visual, high impact look that’s
enticingly different.

The intelligent design, works in conjunction with Minosa’s water
saving technology which reduces tap waterflow from a commonplace
industry average of 20 litres per minute to 4-6 litres per minute.

The subtle bowl depth plays on the logical expectation that splash will
occur. Conversely Minosa were one of the few company’s worldwide to
pioneer the design of splash free shallow basins by incorporating their
reduced waterflow innovation and with that the idea of using only the
amount of water required for function .

Made from non porous, premium material CorianTM by DupontTM – a material
that offers unparalleled hygiene; durability; stain, mildew and chip
resistant qualities; and repairability if needed.

Each basin is hand crafted to exacting standards by a team of local
artisans and manufacturers under the watchful eye of the designers. This
produces exceptional quality and a short lead-time with a reliable
delivery date (10-15 business days) that can be scheduled into your

Proudly Australian design and manufacture to produce product that stands
on its own in leading edge design, quality and performance while
supporting local industry.

Virtually maintenance free – the product is easily cleaned with a cloth
or sponge and warm soapy water, or more stubborn stains, use a mild
