Beautiful and functional
Alessi Sense by Oras is an electronic faucet that combines design and aesthetics with usability and sustainable technology. The faucet is opened by pressing gently on top of it, after which it remains open for six seconds. A longer press lights up the LED lights on top of the faucet and lets the water flow for a minute, unless the faucet is manually closed before that.
In 2016, Alessi Sense by Oras washbasin faucets 8710F and 8712F were rewarded with the Red Dot Award: Product Design.
Intelligence and aesthetics combined
The kitchen faucet ALESSI Sense by Oras is available with smart dishwasher valve. The washbasin faucet ALESSI Sense by Oras, is also available with a Smart Bidetta hand shower. Thanks to its wireless functionality, the Smart Bidetta hand shower can be installed further away from the faucet, making it ideal for a wide range of different bathroom configurations.
