Sensor Faucet for bathrooms
Some of the best and most timeless designs in the world are the ones based on purpose and function. The miscea LIGHT simply and elegantly solves the need for separate soap or disinfectant dispensers which can be aesthetically unattractive over time. The ergonomic design fo the miscea LIGHT allows for uncomplicated use and maximum comfort and durability. We've taken the most advanced sensor technology and incorporated it into a sleek and modern faucet design for the most elegantly minimalistic result possible.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The miscea LIGHT range of sensor activated faucets have an integrated soap dispenser engineered directly into the faucet for convenience and maximum hand hygiene benefits. Using fast and reliable sensor technology, it dispenses soap and water for a über hygienic and ergonomic hand washing experience. The built in soap dispenser is activated when a user’s hand passes over the soap sector. Soap is then only dispensed when a user’s hand is placed under the soap outlet of the faucet. Water can be received intuitively by holding your hands under the water outlet. In idle mode, soft pulses of light instantly create a calm and inviting ambience. The unique desing of the miscea LIGHT system allows it to be used with the miscea remote control for adjusting different fucntions to the desired settings. With an elegantly modern design, it perfectly complements any environment.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The miscea LIGHT system has a very intuitive user interface and is very easy to use. To activate water, the user just needs to hold their hands under the water sector. The faucet will immediately detect your hand and instantaneously water will start to flow. If you remove your hand away from the detection zone of the faucet, the water flow will stop automatically. To receive soap or disinfectant (depending on the model), simply activate the soap/disinfectakt sector on the top by holding a hand over the detection zone, then place your hand under the spout where you would instinctively go for water, and the soap should dispense directly into your palm.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in March 2012 and finished a year later in Berlin. It was on display and launched at the ISH 2013 trade event in Frankfurt, Germany.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
miscea products feature advanced infrared (IR) technology for proximity hand detection. Years of experience and product R&D has helped miscea to effectively harness this technology and apply it to achieve a high level of reliability. Light reflections in the sink and other highly reflective surfaces, as well as changing environmental light conditions have all proven to be major challenges. The software algorhythm for filtering the detected signal played a major role in this. After many years of product optimization and development, we can proudly say, that we have the most reliable and fastest responding sensor faucets in the world.
