As if it was a “human car wash”, Circaqua guides the user through the different stages of the shower: it automatically transitions from one stage to the next one in order to reduce water consumption. It also provides a pleasing experience as the user deals with water in its different states.
The shower would start with a gentle steam to dampen the body, followed by a pause to allowlathering. Right after that, the shower would release the water wit h a classic waterfall effect for a deep rinse. The design aims to maintain a luxurious and tranquilising experience while informing of the time spent on each phase using colour coded LED strip seamlessly integrated.
The shower can be programmed with the integrated tactile screen. Initially the user can choose between different durations, aiming to progressively reduce the showering time and save more water.
The data about the water consumption can be accessed through the “Circaqua App” so that the user monitors and shares their progress.
