Cross Cultural

Next week, Milan hosts the international design fair iSaloni. This faucet will put in an appearance there; it is called Himmapan. That's also the name of a forest central to Buddhist and Hindu literature which was home to fabulous creatures of hybrid appearance. Mixing characteristics of fish, fowl, and four-legged beings, these animals are widely depicted in Indian and Thai art, often displaying flowing feathers and tails.

Any similarity to this fitting is purely intentional. cotto.co.th

  1. Very cool. It's not often that you see a faucet that is truly unique and original in design as this one.
