Ring faucet is about experiencing water in a whole new way in our daily lives --to rediscover the awe-inspiring beauty of water in a small home faucet. This unique faucet visually frames flowing water in a circular fashion, giving you a full view of the water just as it falls over the edge.The opening orifice at the spout end lets in natural light which illuminates the flowing water for a striking view. Water is ‘reinstated' as a precious element, like a fine diamond. The external form is simple and pure, as befits a faucet that is meant to emphasize the elemental beauty of water. The simple form allows the design to be easily translated into a series of faucets that cater to different settings and requirements. While the design is novel in terms of aesthetics, the sense of comfort in using a familiar domestic fitting is not lost as the faucet is designed to adopt the conventional interface of the hot and cold -handles basin mixer. Moreover, this tripartite arrangement fits in well with large basins and/or vanity tops.
