Be they for sinks, bathtubs or bars, modern faucets are usually designed to be sleek, simple and symmetrical. This single faucet stands out from the crowd as angular, asymmetrical and with a downright disturbing red eye at the heart of the design making it look like something from Terminator or The Transformers as much as an interior design product.
Stealth-inspired, the idea is that this luxury faucet would be carved out – handle, head, hole and all – from a single block of chrome. Great as it is, it is hard to envision a sink basin or drain plug worthy of such a funky fixture – hopefully Sofian Tallal has more yet to come. Meanwhile, it might go best with a curved sink and basin design.
This futuristic faceted faucet design was created for Sayegh Group.
“Concept design of a futuristic line of bathroom/kitchen faucets that look as if they were carved out of a block of metal. The wide base, extended neck and rear-mounted handle provides a dynamic profile reinforcing the stealth-inspired sharp edges and flat facets.”
Here’s another cool project by Sofian Tallal that goes perfectly with the Chiseled Faucet: a futuristic showerhead.
“For people looking to add smart-shower water saving capabilities to an existing shower, Smart & Blue has developed the HYDRAO Drop smart shower light. Simple to install, HYDRAO Drop has a flexible arm that can be positioned to illuminate any shower surface or water jet for a personalized smart shower experience.”
“HYDRAO Drop benefits from a new miniaturized version of Smart & Blue’s patented smart shower technology, allowing users to benefit from an ultra-sleek, streamlined design, with no compromise to HYDRAO’s unique water conservation guidance. Also new is the ability to allow individual users to monitor their own personal usage and savings – on either one or multiple HYDRAO smart showers.”
