Happy Tap / Shower mixer

Happy Tap
Happy Tap

The vision was to create consumer awareness about heated water consumtion. The fact that 1/5 of the energi consumtion of a villa goes to heat up water, and in apartments even more, was a trigger. I developed a shower mixer which has a timer function both for the water flow and the water temperature. I wanted to communicate the importance of decreasing the use of heated water with the design of the product. The shape is therefore whole when the shower is not used. When it is used the shape is broken. The timer function makes the regulation parts go back to its original position and restores the shape. A magnet holds the shower head in place.
