Elegance with a Purpose

May 7th, 2011 BY slowbuddha | No Comments

Designed by Yonggu Do, Dohyung Kim, and Sewon Oh, this elegantly designed sink faucet helps to promote water conservation. Known as the 1 ℓimit faucet, the design stores up water and then releases it in a kind of flush, providing the user with a very limited supply of water to wash with. The faucet envokes the very simple principle of “what you see is what you get.” The glass tube of the faucet holds one liter of water and once used, the faucet takes time to refill before it can be used again. The faucet represents a simple but effective means of reducing water waste and promoting conservation.
