SIMP / Water tap


SIMP – A Water tap for everybody

To allow a wide range of users, the two adjustment rings in the middle are customizable.

The user can set the rings on its favorite position. So a simple one hand usage as well as a two hand usage is possible. Because of the rings the users are able to control the temperature in a very easy and effortless way. The Waterpower is controlled automatically to assure a sustainable usage. Simple color coding together with Braille allow a simple understanding of the function.

Due to standard measurements “simp” is able to be mounted on every sink. This guarantees a usage for everybody.
