Eco-Pulse / Digital Shower Control Unit


Eco-pulse is a smart digital shower control unit that makes the user aware of the amount of water consumed while showering.

The digital interface on top of the sliding and turning knob is intelligent, yet easy to understand. A clear rising water animation and numbers indicating how many liters the showering person has consumed is constantly keeping the user elegantly aware.

One minute of constant showering equals 10 liters of water. So every 10 liters consumed the water flow will interrupt in a pulsating manner for a second while a white ring around the interface will light up to subtly remind the user about the amount of water consumed.
