The fitting has always been a symbol of elemental simplicity and poignantly authentic aesthetics. On the occasion of its 20th birthday, we present MEM in a new architectural setting that builds on this tradition in a groundbreaking way.
Organic water flow and a design reduced to the essentials are defining characteristics of MEM. Reminiscent of a spring--one of the oldest and purest sources of water--the intentionally conservative design of MEM complements the ambiance of various bathroom architectures with ease. It stands for: clarity, reduction, balance.
We designed MEM with the aim of making it possible to experience the naturalness and clarity of water. To achieve this, the faucet has a simplistic design. In its contour, it appears like an arc-shaped line that follows the fall of natural water and ends in a wide rectangular spout. I can hardly imagine anything simpler. Its minimalist design makes it an icon with a sculptural quality and at the same time brings the importance of the element of water to mind. Humans receive it as if from a spring. It is a rare commodity, foodstuff - without water, there is no life. We wanted to make this tangible with MEM: an elementary recollection and at the same time a new aesthetic water presentation.
