Outline

Fluid is a tap in which the elements emerge vividly from its base. Spout and mixer are cylindrical and contrast with the rectangular shape of the base, from which they rise up in harmony with a morfing process between the surfaces. The fluid form allows to place the cartridge above the level of the basin top in an smooth way and to center the spout of the tap on the basin hole. The wall taps (bath, shower and washbasin) is a totally new system of "semi-concealed", where there is no built-in body in the wall, but the hot and cold water connections are covered with a block of 21 x 7 and 3 cm.

Evaluation

The spout and faucet are combined in a single unit to make installation simple and save space. When they are too close together it can be difficult to turn the faucet, but in this case it can be tilted to one side so it remains easy to use. The base of the unit has a curved profile that gives an impression of beauty and elegance, and makes the product easier to clean.
