The SF-WCH120 is a strictly linear designed boiling water tap which was conceived for office kitchen units. A double layer construction with an insulating air pocket ensures that the outer surface of the water tap does not get hot, in spite of its metallic impression. The operating control is located at the user-facing end of the tap in front of the outflow spout so that the user does not need to reach past the hot water to turn it on and off.
Statement by the Jury
Handling boiling hot water involves particular dangers, which this water tap minimises thanks to a well-conceived, reduced design.
