BB-15 / Water softener

The BB-15 removes contaminants from tap water while softening it. Soft water has excellent cleansing power and helps prevent skin diseases as well as save water. The aim was to design a water softener that doesn’t merely provide clean water but also communicates with users to let them see how much water remains. An illuminated gauge is installed on the product front to show, for the first time in the industry, soft water usage and the time taken to soften water. The softener can be installed on the wall or as a standalone product, and we have preserved its minimal form to make it a timeless design suitable for any bathroom.
