We’ve sold some interesting sanware over the years, but I think this is the first time we’ve been lucky enough to find some laboratory taps! Aren’t they quite beautiful? When I spotted them the first thing I thought was that I wished I had somewhere for them in our own home! But sadly we don’t, so hopefully there’ll be an architect or interior designer out there who has just the right project for these taps. Rather bizarrely the double tap is for cold water only, so would only really be suitable as an outside tap, or for a bathroom basin where you might not necessarily need hot water. The taller single tap (which is seriously tall!) would be great for a prep basin in a kitchen, or again for a bathroom sink.
They’re probably not the most practical of taps, but sometimes you have to override functionality for aesthetics, and in this case I think it’s seriously worth the compromise!
P.S. Lab taps (new and old) are pretty expensive, with a new version of our single pillar tap selling for $175 (R2400) on an online restaurant store and $370 Oz dollars (R3700) for the real laboratory version.
Dimensions: Double tap – 33cm tall (excl. portion that sits below sink) x 13.5cm wide; Single tap – 58cm tall (excl. portion that sits below sink)
