MAYDAY is the built-in wall mixer tap by Antoniolupi that takes the shape of an alarm bottom. That’s the way the interaction with the taps changes. No more lever up to let the water flow, but a bottom to pull and push. The movement transforms the tap’s function itself. The shape evolves according with its use.
Gi-RA design features a design that plays on meanings transforming an emergency button in a command handle to use every day: MAYDAY is a remote wall mixer suitable for sink taps, showerheads or hand showers.
The water opens by means of an axial movement, not as one would expect by pressing the button but pulling it toward us. The mixing of the water jet takes place by turning right or left while pressing the button closes the jet. It is a new way of interpreting the mixer and redefining characters and modes of operation.
