Pavati Tap, cool waterfall design.
We never get a chance to see how the hot and cold water blend together within the faucet, before it cascades out like a stream. The Pavati Tap builds upon this element, to showcase how beautifully the two streams of water can create drama whilst you wash your hands. A Y-shaped waterfall effect mixes the cold and hot water into a single mutual waterfall, for your viewing pleasure.
Design involves two different taps for each temperature and more modern models combining the two for a more balanced experience. The result is a sculptural creation that releases what appears to be a stunning albeit miniature waterfall.
Designed by Salmon Nortje, the Pavati Tap boasts a futuristic aesthetic as well.
The hot and the cold columns graciously turn and bend creating a Y shape that insures the perfect meeting point for the two streams. The aesthetic is ultra-modern and minimalistic, while the components are the traditional ones.The standard mechanical parts create a strong contrast with the futuristic design, but the goal was for the tap to be used in standard conditions.
Pavati thus fits most standard basins and can be installed with simple tools. The hot and cold streams will vary in position depending on how the temperature dials are adjusted. This way, the the two streams also become a visual indicator of what temperature we should expect from the combined stream. A great way of achieving an avant-garde design from existing standard parts. And yet another proof that water is an eternal source of inspiration for designers and artists!
