Strategy

ELECTRONICS FOR THE BATHROOM


In future, electronically controlled fittings will replace traditional, mechanically operated water dispensers in private bathrooms and lavatories too. The electronic fittings we developed for HighTech combine ease of use, water savings and durability in a design that meets the very highest aesthetic standards. Senso stands for totally new product concepts.

Innovation

SENSORS REPLACE MANUAL CONTROLS


When the user approaches the mixer, it activates itself and greets him with control elements illuminated in white. The electric valve opens when the infrared sensor detects a hand moving under the spout. At the same time, the red and blue LED indicator bars of the touch keys for regulating the water temperature light up. This concept stands for a totally new kind of dialogue between the fitting and its human user.

Design

CLASSIC SHAPE WITH A FUTURISTIC TWIST


At a purely visual level, the fitting is evocative of classic double-handled mixers but has no moving valve handles whatsoever. The sensor technology permits new usage procedures and the absence of mechanical mixers allows for totally new design approaches. Senso creates innovative accents without departing from the basic shape consumers have learned to associate with mixers.


Senso won the Plus X Award “Best Product of the Year 2013” in the categories innovation, design, ease of use and functionality.
