Water that communicates

How many times have you stuck your hand under the faucet to see whether the water is hot yet? Or, cold enough to drink…

Experience design aims to please the senses in a manner that enhances function. Hansa provides an example of the art and craft in practice, mixing the pleasing sense of color with the soothing sound of water, while providing cues about its temperature.

“Remove the top of a spigot, create a small-scale canyon, add backlighting and you’ve got ambient water fittings. That’s what Germany’s Hansa is doing with Hansacanyon, by adding LEDs that change color as a function of water temperature so you can see when it’s hot or cold.” Thanks to: MoCo Loco
