Mid-to-mid / faucet


People have different usage habits on faucets. Many users who do not
deliberately right-aligned the taps will trigger heater unconsciously.
It not only unnecessarily consumes, gas but also combusts into carbon
dioxide and carbon monoxide, worsen the environment pollution.
This design will lead users to create "things go situ" usage patterns,
thru subconsciously aligning the line on the faucet. As a result, we may
avoid opening the faucet on the warm-water side caused by
unintentionally triggering the heater and wasting resources.
