ZEN-faucet / faucet

Inspired by natural cobblestone, quebradas and chain of mountains, this faucet design abandoned any form of substance for the emptiness imagery. That means, nothing is everything, and there is more than substance! So, the faucet has no positive existence form based on a ideological aesthetic perception of Emptiness and Nihility.
The product’s minimalism shape combines with the manifold images, to show an appreciation of the emptiness visualization, as well as presents a consciousness of Zen. Product design semantics is used in faucet’s function control.Form itself is emptiness, and emptiness itself is form.
It’s Zen.
