The Arc is a criticism about existing drinking water faucets look like bathroom faucet. The designer thinks drinking water faucet in the kitchen should be certainly different from bathroom faucet because that is where ‘clean drinking water’ comes out. Therefore, the Arc has been designed to bring a new experience about clean drinking water to our daily lives.

DRINKING WATER FAUCET
It dispenses purified clean drinking water through the under-sink filtration system.
By putting the complex filtration components under the sink, only the faucet is visible.
PURE BEAUTY OF WATER
The form is pure and simple. The streamlined design borrows the design motif from flexible and dynamic images of water. It looks like water shoots up and falls on the other side and projects fundamental beauty of water. Its unique beauty will bring a new atmosphere in the kitchen.
DESIGN FOR BETTER USE
The Arc is slightly slanted and the center is empty. It not only creates a dramatic tension but also provides practical usability.
Users can easily get drinking water even with a large bowls as well as cups with various heights.
The open shape gives users better accessibility. When installing it on a kitchen island, this advantage becomes more prominent. Users can use it in all directions without considering the product’s front and back. Small light on the side flashes when the under-sink filter replacement is needed.
It dispenses purified clean drinking water during users touch their finger on the button. Users can easily adjust the amount of water.
