Flow / Design of Future Public Sink


This is a special material sink designed to save water for public sink users. It uses an organic image that resembles a flowing state and gradually becomes flat as the usage time accumulates, thereby intuitively alerting the user to saving water and restricting the user from ending use in about 30 seconds. At the same time that it achieves water conservation utility, it eases the situation of queuing up water in public wash basins and strains on public resources.

If it is used for a long time, users will face the problem of dripping water and may also face the pressure of public opinion.
