minimum / Bathroom Faucet





Minimum is an environmentally friendly bathroom faucet that brings user experience to a new level. Smart technology allows the hand-washing process to be more pleasurable, completely hygienic and very intuitive. A sensor-based water adjustment system also saves water as the faucet senses where and how much water is needed. Shelf functionality helps to keep the sink area clean and better organized. A simple design suitable for many different bathrooms, as the storage shelf can be personalized using different materials and colors.

Smart appliance design could involve more devices, this is a quite new idea, to make the washbasin sensitive, and it makes people's life more smart and humane.
