Like a low-flush toilet, the 1Limit Faucet builds up a reserve of water prior to use so that when one washes his hands, a predetermined maximum quantity is used.

Literally called the "One Liter Limit" tap, this bathroom fixture ensures that the amount of liquid needed to adequately cleanse is used exclusively, eliminating the estimated 6 liters of wasted water that goes straight down the drain. Operated by a lever system, the 1Limit Faucet was designed by Dohyung Kim, Sewon Oh and Yonggu Do, and offers a futuristic appearance and an ideal eco-friendly function.
