Aquarium washbasin

The Moody Aquarium offers an interesting "blank canvas" for those who wish to really personalise their bathroom.

Billed as an aquarium, the huge glass enclosure which forms the basin could be used in a variety of ways to create an absolutely unique bathroom feature. Ifyour imagination isn't up to it, there's always the opportunity of waking up to splash your face in turquoise waters amongst tropical fish.

Designed by Luigi Boni and manufactured by Italbrass, the Moody Aquarium Washbasin is watertight and made from solid glass. Two openings are blended in to the design under a facade of soap dishes on either side of the basin to allow access. The standard features of any aquarium come with the design including a power-head to provide water circulation, oxygenation and filtration, a sand bed and lighting to keep the fish happy. It's mounted on a chrome finish brass stand with a front towel rail.

If you prefer your wash basin less animated it can alternatively be set up as a Zen garden or pebble river bed. Priced at US$4900, the Moody Aquarium Washbasin can be matched to other themed bathroom fixtures manufactured by Italbrass.

Despite its striking design it's hard to say how happy Nemo will be in the wash basin aquarium. With a drain pipe at the centre of their universe leading to a dark oblivion, hyper stressed fish could prove a problem.

The Aquarium Washbasin can be purchased online. http://homeclick.com/showpage.asp?itemid=123531
