The H-Faucet Appears to Make Magic with a Seemingly Abscent Spigot

What looks to be either structural or decorative in the H-Faucet is actually a combination of both, combined with the fixture's practical feature. The intriguing thing is that these four slender tubes that hold up the spout accomplish their tasks with such minimalist grace.

Designer Jang Wooseok strove to deconstruct the familiar image of the faucet, stripping away one of its more central elements: the shaft. In its place, the tap emerges from the countertop as four separate metal pipes, supporting and feeding into the long rectangular head.

A rigid geometric handle stands upright within the base of the H-Faucet, leaning out to the side only when the spout is in use. The overall appearance of the unusual tap is one of stark yet stylish rationality.
