The accessories are designed from a modular set-up principle and every product share the same base.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:

One of the findings with the research was to enhance quality perception for plastic products getting them closer to their aspirational. Detailed engineering and technology used for the chromed cases; extensive research was performed to find the best manufacturing practices to obtain neat looking faucets.

CHALLENGE:
Designing innovative and contemporary products in plastic brings several design considerations and challenges; providing the user with products that are easy and quick to assembly was one of the main daring objectives in the project, as well as an accurate case design for the injection molding technology, taking into account that chrome parts reflect imperfections more accurately than any other surface finish.
