WASHOWER / shower mixer tap and washbasin


To wash oneself has lost attraction even though it is one of the most sustainable water-saving procedures of personal hygiene. «washower» revives it expanding the standard shower equipment with an attachable washbasin in the wet area of the domestic bathroom where it belongs to. Made of local wood, it contrasts the often cool atmosphere in this room and it is easily detachable in order not to limit the user whenever he/she whishes to shower. In this situation, the water hose is properly channelled around the mixer tap to a second mount overhead. An electronic mixer with the option to pause fits perfectly into a sleek and timeless design.
