This Designer Is Saving Water By Turning It Into Mesmerizingly Beautiful Art.
Turning on the faucet is the most routine household act you can perform, done dozens of times a day in every household. But until now, streaming water never looked so good.
Designed by London's Royal College of Art student Simin Qiu, this concept faucet was created to turn the water into elegant, swirling patterns.
The look of the flowing water is sleek, modern, and a definite upgrade from the boring, straight streams of water streaming out of your average kitchen sink.
Qiu's faucet design uses a double turbine, which is activated by the motion of the water (with a little help from gravity). There are also holes cut into the nozzle of the faucet, which produces three different gorgeous structural effects in the running H2O.
If this conceptual faucet of the future wasn't already cool enough, there's an added bonus to this stream of chicness: Using Qiu's design saves up to 15% of the water you'd normally use, making this faucet both gorgeous and efficient.
