ann-o is an urban water place which provides a drinking and washing facility meeting the new human need to avoid pathogen transfer in the public. The innovative shape and touchfree interaction break up with old habits and initiate a completely new user experience. Illuminated icons illustrate the regulation of water jet strength, soap dispenser and drinking fountain and, together with the familiar material mix aluminium-porcelain, help to overcome inhibitions. By operating mainly self-sufficient based on photovoltaic energy, rain water collection and a hidden purification plant, ann-o contributes actively to a more ecological urban lifestyle.
