This is an amazing and interesting faucet design by Ian Mayhew. This faucet use water’s properties of surface tension to make the water wrap around the outside the metal curve and fall in an uniform stream from underneath the slide.
“Water molecules are more numerous/closer together along the inside of an arc. These stronger bonds amount to a cohesion force. Water molecules are also attracted to one another (adhesion) and encourage them to follow and join with one another. Adhesion and cohesion, in essence, make surface tension.”
This characteristic create an amazing effect that nearly impossible. This faucet use a light sensor that makes the water flow when the user’s hand enters the basin. To control the temperature and the flow you can use temperature and flow controls that located at the edge of the basin.
