It is such a pervasive daily annoyance that most of us have just learned to live with: bending over, craning our necks and turning our heads sideways just to get some water out of the bathroom sink to drink or rinse our mouths with.
Designer duo Jinsun Park and Byungmin Woo, however, have had enough. They have designed a simple system for switching between down-pouring and up-spouting water so that any ordinary sink (commercial or home) can double as a drinking fountain.
The direction of water flow is reversed with the simple push of a button and the overall design has elements of both a standard sink and a facility to drink from. All in all this is another great example of solving a universal problem most people take for granted. Who knows, this might become a standard interior design fixture for every bathroom.
