GROHE’s new FootControl kitchen taps incorporate the brand’s innovative EasyTouch technology for hands-free operation. The tap allows you to control the flow of water without any hand or arm contact, providing you with even more flexibility in the kitchen. To activate the water flow, simply tap your foot on the base of the kitchen unit and the water will start, tap it again and the water will stop. The temperature of the water can also be pre-set so that the water flow will start at your desired temperature. The hands – free operation provides you with a more hygienic kitchen tap, as you no longer have to touch the tap with dirty fingers.

SBID has firmly established the awards as one of the most prestigious recognitions of design excellence in the interior design industry. Winners will be announced and awarded with the crystal SBID International Design Awards 2016 trophy at the official ceremony, held at The Dorchester hotel London on Friday 25 November 2016.
