‘two in one’ by ukrainian designer julia kononenko combines a shower head and a sink faucet together. the double-functioning object provides the option of switching between desired water flows, creating an integrated bathroom solution. when positioned above the sink, the rotating unit works like a regular tap, while set above the shower zone it changes its direction to disperse outwards. the entire construction is designed using clean lines and simple details, with the industrial-looking device offset by the use of warm, wooden materials.

  • At least the maid will not have to wash down the glass shower enclosure. No stars.


    JimCan says:
  • Love it, even the counterweight. Don’t change a thing. Cuts plumbing installation costs in half. But you might want a drain for the sink, possibly into the shower drain.

    Mort d'Urban says:
  • Rube Goldberg is alive but possibly a bit demented.
    I see a lot of dirty dusty surfaces to clean. Sculptural but not an improvement.
    Fun but not realistic?

    Ron Smith says:
  • No shower curtain? Wood basin? This will not go well.
