Like any wall-mount design, pipework has to be concealed in the wall before completing the wall and hanging the mirror to achieve this look.

Consider a side installation. Who said the faucet has to be based behind the basin? Throw it off a bit by installing your faucet into the left or right of the sink and then pair it with a rectangular basin to balance the asymmetry. This works particularly well if your vanity is narrow; it’ll allow for a deeper sink.
