the fifth series designed by japanese studio nendo for elecom, ‘jaguchi’ (‘faucet’, or ‘tap’) is a line of stands for smartphones and tablets. composed of polycarbonate plastic with ABS faucet parts, the stands take the appearance of an old-fashioned faucet from which water is streaming into a small puddle. the pieces are produced in clear, blue, black, and white.

  • why?

    meagain says:
  • …. no !!!

    Bull says:
  • I find it quite amusing actually.

    Donna says:
  • Is there really so much need to have a stand for a smart phone? These are HAND HELD devices. Why waste the energy and resources on novelty?

    beegeepee says:
  • gadget for gadget!??

    kabubi says:
  • Unnecessary and impractical.

    Dario says:
  • What is the significance of this? I don’t get it

    A says:
  • … why?

    Arielle says:
  • If you have to ask “why,” you don’t get it. This is wit, or surrealism — the amusingly irrational peaking through the rectilinear, cause-and-effect, right-or-wrong world. That said, this is pretty silly

    Mort D'Urban says:
  • I wouldn’t use it for my ipad, i might just put it on my desk, it is pretty cool!

    Diego Ascencio says:
  • wtf they’ve put the devices in the wrong side… pfff
    water should flow FROM the ipad, here the tap is reversed.

    jess says:
  • this? from Nendo? I used to like them…

    M. Frank says:
  • Would make a good tap display!

    Weevy says:
  • probably they need money.

    AL says:
  • W€LL DON€ N€NDO!!!

    D€$IGN??? says:
  • very surreal, totally impractical but fun all the same. [url=]Architects in London[/url]

    Alex Mungo says:
  • I wonder what’s the design brief ? Expected more from nendo.

    blai says:
  • it’s sad that a great resoure as designboom gives space to such a stupid project, just because it’s done by a known name…

    android says:
  • What boring people here! You are wasting good air by shouting and being negative!

    I find this hilarious and stylish! Where do I buy one? One poster is correct, though, I’d rather have the faucet coming FROM the device!
