HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE 2015

Eve is a bathroom fitting that makes the user aware of the amount of water used on a daily basis. The faucet visualizes water use. With an additional app, users can set the maximum daily amount of water, call up usage statistics and compare them to their friends’ usage figures. New materials like ceramics and concrete are used to create a totally new look. The choice of materials also allows endless possibilities for customized solutions.

Eve uses the possibilities of digital networking to playfully make the user aware of the value of the vitally important resource of water. Indicating the amount of water used, the display is elegantly integrated into the cylindrical faucet. An app to analyze and control individual water consumption and to interact in social networks completes this well-conceived concept.
Jury Statement
I am so happy that 'eve' won this prize. It shows me that sustainability and good design is not a contradiction at all and that my attempt is appreciated. I really wish that 'eve' might trigger the usage of new materials in the context of faucets to bring more diversity into peoples bathrooms.
