The photo shows a nice device with a pair of valves, designed just for the bathroom and painted in shiny chrome. This mixer is designed to supply water to the sink. He copes brilliantly with his task, while emphasizing his respectability and solemn mood with his appearance.
Against the background of a smooth wall, the Kaiser shower faucet looks - you shouldn't be afraid of this word - brilliantly. But if you put the device of the same brand in the kitchen, against the background of a dark wall near a large window - the result will also please the owners. Designers in Germany have created a product that masterfully enters even into such an elaborately complex setting. But in this sink there is a direct, like a tower, apparatus for water supply. Conciseness and severity are expressed to them as fully as possible.
