Guardian / Faucet


Water shortages are still a serious problem. The faucet, called ”Guardian“, uses a piston pump that prevents water from flowing out many times to save water. The first press is easy, but if you press several times in a short time, the pressure regulator can make it difficult to get water out. At the same time, there are filters in the faucets to treat sewage. Using the shape of a bird as a faucet to warn people to cherish water resources like animals.
