Bamboo Spring / water tap

Bamboo Spring
Bamboo Spring

Water taps are among the commonest products in our daily life, but most of them are made of metal, as always.
The inspiration of Bamboo Spring comes from the tradition of fetching water with bamboo tubes. Just with a slight press on the conducting groove, the water will emerge from the outlet, and weakened by hitting the conducting groove it softly streams all the way along the groove to your hands, making you feel as natural as drawing the springs with a bamboo tube in the wild.
The water will die down automatically in a while after the conducting groove gets back to where it was. Therefore the precious water resource is saved this way.
