Blend / Faucet


The Chinese Tai Chi, has an long history and enjoys a high reputation in both China and abroad. The “Blend” combines Tai Chi with faucets, using Tai Chi diagram’s unique shape to make the hot water blend the cold water. The cold water flows out of the top of the arc, while the hot water flows out of the bottom of the arc. The cold and hot water respectively taps along the outer wall of the faucet and mixes into warm water at the bottom to flow down. The unique shape does not only result in different effect, but also bring users different feeling.
