swipe / digital shower


"Swipe" integrates gesture control into your shower using digital technology.
Sensors in the inside of the product capture your movement and transfer it into adjustments of water pressure and temperature.

Start the shower by swiping your hand quickly between the front and back of the right element. Once the shower is started, move your hand up or down to adjust water pressure.

The right element allows you to control temperature whilst small lights in the inner part of the objects indicate how to use the product.

The two elements can be arranged in the shower as desired by the customer.
