RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
While designing a product series that reflect simplicity, elegancy and user-friendly ergonomics, items should also have organic and geometric forms. Continuous lines can be used simply; but lever design is preferred to be differentiated from standard mixers. Medium and Tall Type Length Basin Mixers options and different color alternatives of all products should be presented to the users.

CHALLENGE:
Lever design of the product should be creative, special and different from all other mixer examples. Color coating technology should be applied perfectly in details and mixers should have very high-quality surfaces.
