When we came across the images of this clever, modern and minimal faucet, we couldn't help but share. Combining the functions of faucet and towel rack, this bathroom fixture was actually a DIY project during an apartment renovation. Another photo of the faucet is after the jump.
Found via Better Living Through Design, Ron BenShoshan sent them his images as well as a description of his process:
I was looking for something minimal for my bathroom and wanted to combine 2 different but related uses. It's a plain metal pipe used for plumbing. I'm an industrial design student so I have access to the workshop at school. All I did was bend the pipe to the angle I needed, weld 2 shorter pipes to connect to the wall (only the one on the right is connected to water), put a short tube inside that controls the direction of the water flow so that it doesn't flow the left side of the pipe, chrome it and fabricate to small housing units out of corian that hide the connections to the wall. Not more than 2 working days!
