Taps are one of those devices that have evolved alongside humankind. A mechanical component that has quietly accompanied the improvements in our quality of life and health by bringing a precious resource – water – into our homes.
For a designer, envisioning a new tap is a major endeavor that means coming up with a device whose primary purpose is to provide access to a resource that is critical to life itself. This is how we imagined Tool from the outset, a mixer tap that unites the timeless appeal of mechanical objects with the perfection of simplicity. Tool is a refined water device.
The use of modular parts plus the decisive aesthetic character of each component has led to the creation of an ultra-flexible, highly expandable product line that started out with mixer taps before diversifying to cover other basic bath accessories and complete the family with harmony.
A single mechanical element, repeated and varied in a compositional play of components, gives rise to a complete series of innovative taps, fittings and accessories for technical solutions with solemn purity. This is Tool: a simple idea based on an archetypal concept of the tap and its function. A perfect union of mechanics as aesthetic expedient, Tool presents a subtle play of modular, sectional and flexible elements – a new way to live the bathroom.
