Bathroom fixtures are getting more and more sophisticated as technology allows for new and different integrated functions. The Reece Slide Tap, designed by Zeyu Zeng, is a high-tech take on one of the most important parts of the bathroom: the faucet.
The tap looks – and works – a bit like a slide-open cell phone. To turn it on, all you have to do is slid the top part toward you. This is especially helpful when your hands are dirty and you just need to rinse them off in a hurry. Simply slide the faucet closed when you are done.
The Slide Tap also allows you to customize your water temperature via the touchscreen on top. You can eliminate waste by pre-setting your temperature so that it is perfect as soon as it comes out of the tap. The Reece Slide Tap was named as a finalist in the 2013 Bathroom Innovation Award competition. It remains a concept for now, but if it is ever produced it would be the perfect finishing touch for any space-age bathroom.
