A Pila is the tradition Guatemala sink found in colonial residences or at the central square of a village. They are still made by local craftsmen, mostly working from their backyards. Since it is such an iconic symbol of local design culture, we reimagined its typical shape as a signature, storytelling piece for the Good Hotel in Antigua.
