Colour coded combinations of water and light are all the rage in bathroom design right now. Designed by the former director of design for Mercedes-Benz, Bruno Sacco, the monolithically shaped Hansa Canyon faucet, projects a solid stream of radiantly glowing water. This bold, open water flow is illuminated by an LED light-band, which changes from red to blue depending on your chosen water temperature.
The sister to the Canyon faucet is the Hansa Colour Shower. Research has shown that colour can greatly affect our moods-red tones are said to provide stimulation, yellow induces happiness, and blue can relax the senses. This shower unit incorporates an entire colour spectrum of the same high-performance LEDs, so that with the simple push of a button, you can enjoy a stimulating shower experience that reduces stress, balances energy and colourfully creates a sense of well being.
At $3,310 a faucet, this light show doesn’t come cheap… it will however have your guests running to the bathroom for all the right reasons. Check out the rest of Hansa’s designs at www.hansa.com, or visit www.nortesco.com for a list of retailers.
