British designer Sam Lander has created the Whirligig range of countertop washbasins which are made from concrete.

Each basin is produced using a machine to achieve the decoration, created by Sam Lander, which are then sanded and sealed by hand.

Designers can choose from eight patterns, although no two basins are identical, or opt for their own colours.

Sam Lander offers a bespoke service, where designers can choose up to six colours from a 16-strong palette.

All the basins measure 250mm in height and 390mm in diameter and suit standard-sized wastes.

They have been designed for use with wall-hung brassware.

The Whirligig washbasins also come complete with a one-year guarantee.

Having graduated with a degree in Three Dimensional Design, Lander initially set up the business in a disused lift space in Manchester and now it has its own premises in Derbyshire.

Award-winning founder Lander has already scooped the Materials Lab Associates Prize at the New Designers Exhibit.

Most recently, he has been named Product Designer to Watch at the Homes & Gardens Awards in 2019.

The Whirligig washbasins are already offered by independent retailers The Bathroom & Tile Boutique in Derbyshire and Casabrand in Swansea.
