Apollo / Water Dispenser


The Water Dispenser Apollo dispenses water giving the unique opportunity of conversation between users. It has three water taps that allows more than one person to get water at the same time.
The three water taps are disposed in a symmetrical circular way that obligates all the three people to face each other when they are having water. This position was designed to create the minimum uncomfortable cross of sights between the users in a way that at least, they would feel in the polite obligation of changing some words with each other.
Its exquisite shape which reminds you of a space ship, also makes Apollo a conversation piece.
