For me the
expression Jump the Gap, means an opportunity to change
the world from the standpoint of design.
Daily designers are
dedicated to solve everyday
problems, trying to improve the lives of
people, designing objects more efficient, and environmentally
The shortage of water
requires reiterating a call for
moderation in consumption
by the population worldwide, without
whose cooperation the technical efforts undertaken by some organizations would
very little of
water is used for human consumption because:
90% is sea water and
have salt, 2% is ice and is at the
poles, and only 1% of the entire planet
is fresh water ,found in
rivers, lakes and groundwater.
water as found in nature, to be used without risk to human
consumption needs to be treated to
remove particles and organisms which may be harmful to
health. And finally to
be distributed through pipes to
your house so you can consume
it without any problem or risk.
Water quality is essential for food, energy and
productivity. Judicious management of this resource is
central to the strategy of sustainable development,
understood as an integral management to seek a balance between
economic growth, equity and environmental
sustainability through a regulatory mechanism
that is effective social participation.
Water is an essential but scarce resource for
life. Less than 1% of the planet's water is fresh and accessible to humans, although this
varies considerably depending on
location, climate or season.
I Jump the
gap, doing this design called ECO zonda, a tub with integrated shower, all
made in Corian, which is able to recycle
the water while
you are bathing. This system greatly
reduced daily water consumption in a house type.
The shower has a sensor system that
detects on which position of the tub is
standing the user, providing a
greater flow of water in that area.
tub has a water
flow regulator, and also has an
innovative digital touch panel, which has the water mixture, optimizing the mix
of hot and cold water.
This tub has three basic functions, shower, Jacuzzi
and a typical tub.
Corian as a main material because in the field of design, technology is driving
forward the frontiers. Where a material is as adaptable and formable as Corian,
innovation is a happy accident waiting to happen.
flexible when heat-treated, Corian can be formed into virtually any shape, or
worked like wood to give perfectly rounded edges. This gives me the freedom to
create innovative solutions.
