The SmartControl Kitchen faucets feature a new valve technology that transforms the user experience. Instead of using a lever, the water flow starts and stops with the intuitive SmartControl feature by simply pushing a button at the top of the faucet. If this button is turned, the amount of water can be adjusted precisely - for maximum ease of use that revolutionizes everyday life in the kitchen.

Evaluation

The integration of kitchens with living areas is becoming more common. As such, the visual impact of kitchen tapware is increasing in importance. Rather than using projecting levers like conventional faucets, this design employs a temperature adjustment dial incorporated into the body of the faucet. The flow of water is turned on and off at the tip of the spout. It is very good to see that the functions have been stripped back, rethought, and thoroughly simplified in this way. The unit is available in three shapes, enabling consumers to select one that matches their interior décor.
