Creative Faucets and Sinks

In this post we feature a set of the most creative faucet and sink designs we came across from around the web.

SmartFaucet by ihouse not only recognizes your needs but it also recognizes your face through advanced face recognition technology and adjusts the temperature of the water and the flow to your personal preset preference. And if you thought the fun ended there be ready to be surprised. The touchscreen on the top of the faucet can be used to access email, check your calendar and even check the outside temperature.

Here is a video:

A faucet for just sprinkling water is so yesterday. How about bringing in some music while you are at it? X-Light Surround basin from WET comes with a built-in amplified speaker system for MP3 or portable CD-player.

WET goes one step further with it’s meltdown sink that can even project images from inside to its surface in addition to the sound experience. Is this the first multimedia washbasin out there?

How cool does the Ripple Faucet look? Electromagnetic sensors housed beneath the plate adjust the temperature according to the ball’s placement. When the ball is at the hot end, LEDs light up in red, and when it is at the cold end, leds turn blue.

More light play with LEDs. Faucet Light turns an ordinary faucet into a streaming Blue or Red light source. Color changes with the water temperature! It’s blue when the water is cold or simply turned on.

Kohler’s Karbon Model Faucet is an interesting concept. Designed with multiple, moveable joints, the faucet allows you to position and lock water flow exactly where you need it. You can extend the faucet fully to fill large pots, lower it into the sink for food preparation and cleanup, fold it compactly out of the way when not in use, or position it anywhere in between.

Pritzker Prize winning architect Zaha Hadid‘s TriFlow really has a splendid shape.

Here is a stylish faucet by Shen Di that auto enthusiasts would dig. Shaped in the form of a gear shifter, it allows you to control the flow of the water depending upon the position of the lever.

Abisko Washbasin from Eumar is another experiment in form.

We really like the the Hansa Latrava faucet from Octopus Design which treats the shape of the water flow as a continuation of the hardware.

Novel flower faucet from HEGO. A basin faucet made completely from glass. When opened, the water gushes out from the bottom and fills the vase up to the rim.
