Ring Faucet – Just Cause It Looks Cool

I wish I could say this Ring Faucet concept by designer Lim Sun Liang had some revolutionary new way of delivering water, or was guaranteed to kill 100% of bacteria on your hands but it doesn’t. In fact the only real purpose behind its design is to look cool, and I think it definitely succeeds at that.

This unique faucet visually frames flowing water in a circular fashion, giving the user a full view of the water as it falls ? as if it is flowing over the top of a waterfall. The opening orifice at the spout end allows light to illuminate the flowing water. Thus, water is reinstated as a precious element, like a fine diamond.

Of course I’m not the only one impressed by this design. It seems Ms. Liang’s faucet took home the 2006 red dot award for best design concept in the interior category. Now all we need is for an actual company to take notice. Moen… I’m looking at you.
