Humans really can’t help but waste water. Some of that is due to the fact that we are wasters, but a lot of it comes down to the design of the faucet as well. The Altered: Nozzle is a great alternative to the conventional faucet.
While it’s been designed for use in public spaces, I’m pretty sure that I’d like to have a Dyson Airblade Tap at home. This water faucet is combined with a very powerful hand dryer, which will dry your hands in a matter of seconds.
I think it’s perfectly fine to drink water straight from the tap, but I know a handful of people who have objections because they’re under the impression that tap water is dirty. Maybe it’s because of how the tap looks or maybe it’s all in their heads, but something that might be useful to those who do drink from their taps is the Tapi.
While the people behind Design2009 could not have possibly chosen a more generic Etsy name, their products are bursting with creativity. Their KOZO line of handmade lamps make use of pipes and faucets to come up with a raw and tough take on the good old lamp.
