A marble freestanding sink inspired by a traditional Guatemalan design.

Founder of Rotterdam-based design studio Blooey, Remko Verhaagen focuses on translating culture, sustainability, and artistic vision into minimalist but also meaningful designs. The studio’s collection explores these principles in products that celebrate local craftsmanship and eco-friendly materials. The Pila project is no exception. Designed for the Good Hotel in Antigua, Pila draws inspiration from traditional Guatemalan sinks. The designer refined the rustic shape, offering a contemporary twist on a symbol of local culture. Minimalist and elegant, this marble freestanding sink has a bold T-shape with clean lines. Remko Verhaagen used natural materials for the stylish Pila: marble and teak.

Pila comes in a white and a black marble version. Both of them feature a removable teak tray that offers generous space for grooming products and bathroom accessories. Following the studio’s mission to promote the work of local craftsmen, the Pila sink is handmade in Guatemala. The marble and the teak tray with a waste basket display the exquisite craftsmanship of master artisans. Similarly to Blooey’s other projects, 50% of the profits from the sale of this marble freestanding sink go to charity. In this case, the studio will donate the money to Niños de Guatemala, which helps to provide an education to underprivileged children. Photographs© Blooey.
