Stance is a water filter and hot water dispenser in one unit. Thanks to an innovative sterilisation and filter system, all water flow paths are kept sterile. The pure white body with golden design elements reminds the user of the purity and quality of water. Furthermore, user experience was put in focus: inspired by tap design, Stance provides a centrally located operating lever, showing next to it, when required, important information on temperature, water quantity etc.
Statement by the Jury
Thanks to a combination of joystick and digital elements, the operation of Stance is intuitively understandable. Its purist-elegant appearance is an expression of its particularly hygienic functionality.
