Swan-like elegance for design kitchens
The unique ALESSI Swan by Oras kitchen fitting was created in cooperation with the leading Italian design studio ALESSI. Its graceful, elegant swan shape and the intelligent technological features hidden inside give it an individual, inimitable character – just right for aspirational kitchen surroundings.
A faucet with a grace of a sculpture
ALESSI Swan by Oras was born out of the passion to create an aesthetic innovation: by giving the faucet the grandness and elegance of the swan, the designer enabled new ways of using a faucet. With its unusual and distinctive appearance, ALESSI Swan by Oras is the perfect faucet recommendation for high-end kitchens where design is especially important. Its creator Mario Trimarchi drew his inspiration from nature, specifically from the wings of a swan that served as a model for the elegant operating levers of the faucet. The left-hand lever is used to control the water flow rate, while the right-hand lever sets the temperature.
High-end design combined with SMART features
Alessi Swan by Oras is a new design that combines the smooth lines of the swan with smart Oras functions. The basic model has two levers: one is for adjusting the flow, the other is for the temperature. The maximum flow is 12 litres per minute. The electronic model has a Smart button which enables opening and closing the faucet with one press of the button. For specified models, the smart press pad also functions as an electronic dishwasher valve which closes automatically after 4 or 12 hours from opening.
The designer: Mario Trimarchi
“The special characteristic of ALESSI Swan by Oras is the delicacy of its design language. It takes its cue from the natural elegance of the swan and provides for a fascinating experience in 360 degrees: Like a sculpture, the faucet presents a new facet of itself from each different point of view.”
Mario Trimarchi, the Italian designer known internationally for his capacity to look at everyday objects like sculptures populating our household landscape. Trimarchi has worked for a long time on reinventing everyday objects through an unexpected side step which makes use of unstable geometries such that an object looks different from each angle of vision, like a statue. This approach engendered highly successful products, such as the Ossidiana coffee maker, and La Stanza dello Scirocco, the collection of containers and centerpieces designed for Alessi.
