A wedge-shaped groove on the outlet of the basin mixer Helsinki opens the view to the quality of naturally flowing water. The conically upward tapering column with a single, laterally protruding control gives the element an organic look. Yet, the overall stylistic vocabulary remains restrained, which makes it also easy to clean.
