Floating vanity - is this p-trap plumbing a problem?

I am installing a floating vanity and moving the drain pipe higher (to make the vanity the right height) would be a lot of work due to other things being in the way. This setup uses a low profile drain pipe from Ikea I want to copy. Is this to code? What would potential problems be?

Is this a picture of your final installation or is this the "before" photo?

Why do you want to use a low profile fitting AND raising the drain? Why can't a standard drain be used?

No, this is not my project. A standard p-trap will hit the bottom of the vanity and I'd have to make the ending counter height lower than I want (32" vs 36"). The vanity also has drawers. The top drawer is U shaped. My vanity will be centered on the drain pipe unlike the photo.

Basically, the bottom of the drain pipe is 18" off the ground. The vanity is 20" high and the vanity opening on the back starts 6" above the bottom.
