In order to help you keep your hands clean after washing, the 'AQUAMIX' touchless faucet operates without any contact while destroying bacteria. The faucet is constructed to prevent the growth and attachment of bacteria while presenting you with intuitive touch-free controls.

Created by German design firm City GmbH, the AQUAMIX was built for health professionals. Guidelines from the health sector were followed closely in order to ensure proper hygiene for its users.

Using sensors, the faucet allows you to shut it on and off and control the temperature. A large display on the top of the faucet shows you the temperature at all times in order to prevent scalding. Small gestures from your hands can be used to adjust the water to a safe temperature.
