The Los Angeles minimalist-mansion owned by Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West is undeniably cool, despite housing some creepy statues and strange furniture. Eagle-eyed viewers also noticed a baffling sink during the Vogue interview that left some questioning their sanity.
After the internet exploded with questions, Kim posted a quick tutorial on her Instagram story.

The weird sink appears to pour flat onto a granite surface instead of into a basin.
But there’s actually a subtle dip in the granite slab that drains water into a small rectangular opening.
From a distance, it looks like the water should splash everywhere, but the sink (co-designed by Kanye himself) is perfectly calibrated to avoid any awkward spillage and drains elegantly into the granite.
People online are deeply curious about the expensive sinks.
Hi @KimKardashian. Everyone’s wondering about the master bath’s sink situation. Are there drains on the floor for a waterfall effect?

Hahaha I think I see a tiny little drain and like a little pitch to the sink. Those things are nuts. pic.twitter.com/DpUF4qFLec

This guy reckons Kim and Kanye have “absorbent marble stone” in their bathroom. 🤣
It’s absorbent marble stone.

But others weren’t amused at the latest tidbit about Kim’s celebrity lifestyle.
Not to be a hater but I really don’t need to know everything about Kim Kardashian’s every day life such as her new sink.

Why is everyone talking about Kim Kardashian's bathroom sink as if it's a "rich person" sink? Yeah they probably paid a lot of money for it but you could dupe it with a slab of concrete🤷♀️🤔

Though Kim cleared up the sink mystery, other bathroom questions remain.
Hahaha the real question. 😂

Kim pls where are the toilets though? Pls show us
— Uchay (@missgeme) April 17, 2019
So does the same concept apply to the showers? 🤣

Another weird thing about Kim’s customized bathroom? No toilets in sight.
Maybe the world isn’t prepared for minimalist toilets… yet. But I’m betting they exist — and they’re probably AMAZING.
