Never Before in History has Innovation offered the promise of so much to so many in so short a time” Bill Gates. These words from Bill Gates ring true in all aspects of modern-day living. When we talk about home and bath décor, styling innovations have come up with some breathtaking designs and path-breaking technical advances. When we talk about brassware, an ill represented faucet can look completely out of place and ruin the atmosphere, whether in bathroom or kitchen. On the other hand, a unique piece can create wonders and improve the overall feel of the area.
Designers are very keen to experiment with clever ideas and have introduced some mind-blowing faucets for modern homes that will grace our basins and sinks like never before. Taking inspiration from varied sources, here are some of my favourite.

Inspired by the gear box of a car, Shen Di has designed this simply sensational faucet, rightly called “Shifter” tap. Besides offering a unique, futuristic look, it allows the user to control the flow of water from the faucet just like a gear box would control the movement of a car. This makes for most economical use of water, a precious resource that needs prudent use. Especially designed for the environmentally conscious and those who are passionate about Green living, the brassware also saves on hefty water bills. Focus is on minimalism, even in the styling while offering a luxurious look.
