A faucet with two lever handles is quite the curiosity. Yet that's precisely what Danish designer Anders Hermansen has created with the A-Pex [the name reflects the position of the controls on the top of the spout]. Consumer research indicated that folks wanted controls within easy reach, hence this convenient configuration. One handle regulates the water's temperature; the other, its flow. The fitting is available for both the kitchen and the bath. damixa.com
