MOOD Tapware Line
Madrid, Spain. 2012
MOOD is a new line of tapware designed by luis vidal + architects.
MOOD presents the essence of water. This new iconic design has been created as a fusion between simplicity and emotion. The faucet line is inspired by natural water flow and aims to reduce water consumption. These faucets stand out due to their original geometric lines, which radiate simplicity and integrity, and create an immediate sense of attraction, inviting users to interact with them. The flat spout of the faucet allows a better water flow and keeps the aerator hidden, improving the user experience.
The design takes advantage of the available technology to reduce complexity and to make daily life a little more comfortable, allowing users to enjoy their environment while, at the same time, making a responsible use of it. The digital control of the faucet has two modes: “sleep” (off) presents the product when it is not being used. A second mode, “awake” (on) activates a series of luminous icons, which invite the user to start browsing through the different options in a very intuitive way. The ‘preset’ functions (previously programmed) allow each user to customize the flow rates and temperatures for other uses.
The design has been developed to offer an intuitive, simple, and straightforward use, ensuring that the water usage adjusts to each function. The icons humanize the technical component of the interface, making the use of the faucet very easy.
