Technology and design in harmony

ALESSI Sense by HANSA comprises high-quality faucets for use in sinks and washbasins. Their inventive creator – the renowned designer Rodrigo Torres – has produced a product family that represents a perfect blend of form and function.

Motivating people to become more conscious of how they use water was the main focus of the development and design. It functions on the basis of an intelligent electronic operating system that encourages the user to engage.

Digital support: water saving with a gentle touch

Conserving resources means more than just switching off the light when you leave the room: It is also about reducing water consumption. Thanks to digitalization, that is not a problem any more. ALESSI Sense by HANSA allows for intuitive and at the same time controlled use of water. There is a semi-transparent dish at the top of the fitting that you operate like a button. The flow of water is activated by pressing it briefly or for longer. An LED bar that functions like a timer 'runs out' accordingly. The flow of water can be stopped at any time by pressing the dish again. This gives you a sense of how long the water actually flows and you learn how to use it more consciously.
