Kitchen Faucet + “Function X” = Added Value!

2013 Skills & Techniques

4-week project in collaboration with FM Mattsson Mora Group


This year the challenge was to consider how the next generation of kitchen faucets for the home environment could look like and function when combined with a new "function X" providing added value to a specific type of user or a broad generic group of users.

The creative exercise started with group research and brainstorm session, considering user needs and new functions, technologies, experience, materials and awareness of water consumption.
