Stone In The Creek

Not all fixtures have to be slick, chromy, and minimal. There’s a place for a little bit of the ornate and organic too. The Stone in the Creek wall basin fixture not only looks good, but can also help save water. There are two modes, straight flow and side flow. The former spills water beneath the stone like a standard tap. The latter spills water 360º around the stone. Much less water is wasted so it’s ideal for washing hands.

To control the temperature, you turn the cylinder dish but there’s one caveat. Your hand will get wet if you have it in the side flow mode. Then again some would argue that makes sense since you can variably adjust the temperature accurately since your hand is getting wet.

    Very nice! The temp control disc could be smaller, though.

  • Ekove says:

    I agree with the above poster, the disc could be smaller so the water would have more focused thickness. Than that, sweet design.

  • Henrique Staino says:

    Just a detail, nothing to do with design:

    Notice the appearance of the water in the first pic.
    The appearance of water in that situation is so simple that no one can reproduce it!

  • Sikantis says:

    I like this design even when I wouldn’t use it for me.

  • cl says:

    looks great. like it.
    just one thing: if the water temperature is too high in side flow mode, you’ll “burn” your fingers if you want to change temperature.

    Looks great, but I’m not convinced its any better than conventional faucets.

  • Todd says:

    That ‘s a very pretty aesthetic design and I agree it is no better than a regular faucet.

    But fortunately it saves water. Because as we all know, our used water actually goes flying out into space. Water that man touches is not subject to the normal cycles of evaporation and precipitation to be recycled naturally. No, when humans pump water through our plumbing it goes out a special drain directly into orbit.

    I’m not sure how this would save water. Could somebody explain the jump from, “The latter spills water 360º around the stone,” to “much less water is wasted so it’s ideal for washing hands.” There seems to be no reasoning connecting them. I would say that it wastes water, as some of the water would be going off the rear of the faucet, not getting used. Let’s just say that it is a different design, not a water-saving design.

    Im intersted in buying stone in the creek
    can you please give the price of this product

    nice design but i think it won’t work properly in places where the walls/floors are not 100% flat. the water will not drop equally at all sides in “side flow mode”.
