The new WaterCandy shower head designed by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba for Zucchetti has a strongly innovative look that immediately reveals its eclectic character.
The really revolutionary element is the hand-shower, which as well as performing its traditional function can also be used to massage the body. The back strap makes it possible to hold the shower in a simple, ergonomic way whilst the silicon nozzles are designed here to also be used for a light massage.
As an ideal extension of the hand, the water is free to follow the body in the space, either from a chosen distance or completely cancelling the distance by bringing the nozzles into direct contact with the skin.
Instead of beginning from the conventional idea of the shower, the evolution of the project begins by seeing the functions and gestures associated with showering in a way that goes much wider and is far more open to collecting and borrowing shapes and styles from other contexts, such as the world of sound. In the same way as Closer, which moves away from typical three-dimensional design that takes the aesthetics of a lamp as its reference, WaterCandy by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba echoes the characteristically elegant design of an acoustic loudspeaker with a perforated metal surface. Here the water is modulated as it passes through the holes and can be adjusted according to the user's preferences and requirements.
