Designer Roderick Vos has designed Japanese-style taps for Zeromix. The collaboration between the designer and tap manufacturer has led to a series of design taps with healthy drinking water. This is the first lead and nickel-free tap in the world, with an exclusive design to boot.

Following a long study, Zeromix was able to produce taps from lead-free brass via a special procedure. In addition, any contact with nickel and chrome in the waterway is avoided. This means the tap is manufactured without these heavy metals. Designer Roderick Vos designed the lead and nickel-free taps. The result of this collaboration is a unique tap that combines the themes of health and design.

During the development of the Sozu range, Roderick Vos was inspired by a fountain that appears in traditional Japanese gardens. According to Roderick Vos: “The traditional ‘Sozu’ consists of a hollow revolving bamboo arm which is fitted to a vertical tube. As soon as the revolving arm is full of water, it tips over and you can use the water. I was inspired by the shape of this traditional tap when I was designing the taps for Zeromix.” \
