The SNAKE / Faucet


Made out of cast metal the SNAKE’s structure is featured with 2 separate channels: for delivering warm water and liquid soap.
Two sensors at the nut detect the palms and trigger the valve to start delivering water. The liquid soap is pumped by touching the button located on top of the faucet. When touched, the water supply automatically shuts; one portion of liquid soap is then delivered onto the user’s hands.
Benefits the environment by saving water resources along with materials and energy, which would otherwise have been used for manufacturing soap packaging. By administering doses, saves liquid soap and helps keep surrounded area clean.
