Daily Poll: How Much Would You Pay For a Faucet?


Zaha Hadid is diversifying. Instead of Dubai skyscrapers and Opera Houses, the architect is applying her trademark curvilinear designs to a few smaller projects these days; hot on the heels of her shoe collection for the Brazilian company Melissa, Hadid has teamed up with British manufacturer Triflow to create a faucet. Her “Tap for the Future” is inspired by “the movement of flowing water,” and features Triflow’s patented three-way technology, combining spout, body and handle in a single, seamless curve. Aesthetically, this thing belongs in the Jetson’s bathroom. It also converts into a water filter with the flick of a discreet, touch-sensitive button. Like everything Hadid does, it’s cool. But, how cool is it?
