Arch / faucet


Arch has two holes. Usually users turn on the faucet by putting their hands directly under it like a normal faucet with a sensor. At this point, water will flow out of the main hole and the assistant hole at the same time. The waters will flow in a vertical downward direction for users’ normal use. When people with disabilities or children use the Arch, they can simply press the button in front of the sink. In this situation, water will only flow out of the main hole, reaching close to the edge of the sink, which makes it really user friendly.
