Bamboo / Faucet

Bamboo
Bamboo

In the last couple centuries, bamboo was used by Taiwanese people as tube to deliver water, which was an iconic view in countries around Taiwan. This shows the connection between human and ground, representing the down-to-earth quality of Taiwanese people.
Applying such image, "bamboo" adopted the shape of an cut bamboo where water comes out just like from the beautiful old time. The faucet also combines tap and spout, automatically clean the place you touched. Without annoying process and extra energy cost, "bamboo" totally eliminates the possibility of contamination, and provides refreshing washing experience.
