ARCUA / watertap

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2019

The concept of ARCUA is based on the idea of Form follows Function.
The kitchen appliances are stowed away quickly and leave a tidy working area. The watertap appears by touching the trapezoid front surface. It rises in a rotating movement around the basin. The cutting and working board can be extended from the kitchen island. In the middle of the plate is a grid which is permeable to water. All surfaces were irradiated with a laser and are extremely hydrophobic. The improved microstructure makes it possible to wash away the dirt. This self-cleaning and residue-free kitchen allows the user to facilitate the daily grind.

I’m really glad and honored to receive this award. It definitely is a huge motivation for my design career in the future. Thanks to all who supported me!
