The KWC Ono Touch (with remote)

KWC One Touch

This is a beautiful new faucet from KWC, the Swiss manufacturer of high quality faucets for the kitchen. They prize themselves on “evoking emotion as a part of their design, by adopting a creative innovative approach to shapes, colors, materials and technologies”. This faucet, however, just seems a little odd to me. Even though it creates a clean look, I am not sure that I would want to have a “remote” switch to turn my faucet on and off. With my luck, I’d misplace it just when I need it. What do you think?
