PINCH-FAUCET / Water-tap


PINCH-FAUCET is a new faucet design. In kitchen, we do not want that the water out of the tap are columnar. When washing vegetables, washing dishes, flat water will be more convenient and water-saving. PINCH-FAUCET's inspiration comes from the traditional water pipe. You just need to pinch the outlet and the way of water flowing out will be changed. We use a deformable material to create the outlet, which will make the design possible.
