This single lever mixer tap with features such as a built-in water filter, a retractable outlet and a switch for measured water flow offers a well-considered functionality. To save space, an innovative small high-performance filter with finely granulated active carbon powder is directly integrated into the outlet, meaning a separate drinking water tap and under-sink filter is no longer required. The control between filtered and mains water, as well as the water stream and spray flow functions, is conveniently located at the spout.

Statement by the Jury

This tap in classically simple design is convincing in its space-saving construction, which is accomplished by integrating the filter into the output pipe.
