  • Tags Graphic Design, Packaging, Photo and Prepress, Product Photography

Concept

Development of a tap of TPO plastic that would fill a gap in the market that existed between plastic products with a poor balance between cost benefit (quality / price) and metal products with high prices.

Process

The designer Hector Eckeli came up with a product that allied bold design with the quality of ABS placing it in a price range between the cheapest faucets with no concern for appearance and functionality (garden, laundry tub) and expensive metal options.

Result

Blanc tap won the top prize for Product Design in 2006, the Grand-Prix of Abplast, and Viqua gained national notoriety inaugurating a new sector within the industries of pipes and fittings / crockery and metals.
