Internationally acclaimed for his ability to transform traditional objects into surprising presences in the domestic landscape, Mario Trimarchi has used organic forms, based on the elegance of the swan, for a sculptural faucet that varies its image depending on the vantage point of the observer, with a focus on water consumption in the kitchen, the true protagonist space of today’s home.
Trimarchi has transformed an industrial object with very high standards of quality and performance into a story, a new dialogue with one of the most common everyday gestures.
From a functional standpoint, Alessi Swan represents a very advanced solution. The faucet with maximum flow of 12 liters per minute offers perfect control of water use. Temperature is regulated by an LED that turns on at a level of 32°, lighting the inner part of the embossed lever in red. A press pad that guarantees flow of 5 liters per minute permits remote opening to facilitate use when the hands are already busy with other things.
In the complete version the faucet has a brush for washing dishes, which closes the flow automatically when replaced in its housing.
