ERGONOMIC AND ELEGANT
It is a kitchen mixer (a water tap) which already won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017. Skinny, by FIMA Carlo Frattini and the design of Meneghello Paolelli Associati, can adapt to any style due to its “perfect balance of modern and ergonomic beauty”. Moreover, it represents “an advanced engineering development”.
With a height of 220mm, Skinny has a slim body that “smoothly” unite the base to the spouts’ diameter and its form, asymmetric, makes the tap look “thin and constant” on the whole height.
The lever which controls the water flow is another of Skinny’s innovations. The designers’ interpretation is unconventional and takes advantage of a greater functionality provided by the ergonomic hold, that joins the “clean and elegant design”.
