Zeyphr / Eco friendly kitchen faucet


The word ‘Zeyphr’ is derived from Greek mythology, meaning ‘god of wind’. The concept is based on a kitchen faucet with an added value using the freely available element i.e ‘air’. The form of the faucet is designed by keeping in mind, the modularity attained by form integration followed by added function. The idea was to save water consumption in a smart way buy introducing the force of air pressure that not only enhances the cleaning performance but also reduces a great amount of water consumption during washing. This pressure cleaning of air helps in accessing difficult areas and cleaning minimizing water consumption.
