Zaha Hadid Architects | Avilion Triflow Taps
The new Avilion Triflow tap is inspired by the fluid movement of water. As a standard tap design begins and ends with a geometric arc which renders the water visible only when it leaves the faucet head. The design by Zaha Hadid Architects creates a form derived from the internal movements of water, as a single fluid gesture, where all parts are meant to convey the continuous flow between tap, work surface, and basin.
The Avilion Triflow Tap also incorporates unique manufacturing and functional elements seamlessly into its design. It is revolutionary in its shape as the manufacture incorporates the newest methods of rapid prototyping with a unique ceramic coring process to create each tap as a bespoke art piece.
A separate waterway for purified water is controlled by a touch sensitive electronic actuator while hot and cold are controlled by a single lever which blends with the body of the form as the faucet lightly balances on the work-top.Architect: Zaha Hadid Architects Program: kitchen and bathroom taps
