Wait for Water / product

Wait for Water
Wait for Water

As a product with advanced conceptual interactivity this water purifier proposes new shape that differs from the conventional box-shaped water purifiers.

Applying the interface of a clock, the icons on the front panel show uses the metaphor of showing time to actually show the exact amount of water.

When you rotate the dial in the center a light imitating clock’s hand appears to help the user choose the desired amount of water.

Also the users can choose between normal, cold and hot water by simply pulling the dial towards them.

Therefore the color of the back light changes into white for normal, blue for cold and red for hot water
