Before designer Salmon Nortje, nobody has really thought of showing us how hot and cold water blend together before cascading out of the faucet. This is exactly what the Pavati tap beautifully does, it shows us how the drama of two streams of water blending into one and creating an exquisite hand-washing experience. 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!
