If you came of age in the 70s or 80s and identified yourself in anyway with the young avant-garde, then you know the term “Eno” as the surname of one of the best musical artists and producers of the era. In addition to being one of the founding members of Roxy Music, Brian Eno collaborated with and produced albums by none other than David Bowie, Talking Heads, U2, and—most recently—Coldplay. This may seem like a non-starter for an A&D blog post, but I can’t help but discern a connection between Eno and the forthcoming futuristic and eminently functional Eno Faucet by Sieger Design for Dornbracht.

Dornbracht Does It Again with an Intuitive and Attractive Single-Level Mixer
Musical Eno is known for great achievement within the sometimes confining bounds of experimentation, which is a way of saying he discovered new forms that yet held surprisingly broad appeal. Dornbracht’s Eno does much the same. The Single-Level Mixer has a slim and sleek design that resides just to this side of futuristic, yet it’s familiar enough to adapt to the aesthetic needs of a broad swath of consumers.
The principal functional boon of Eno is its water-saving neutral function. In contrast to other faucets that use both hot and cold water when in the middle position, Eno summons its reserves solely from the supply of cold, thus reducing the habitual waste of warm water to save resources and save you money. Eno also boasts an extendible and retractable spray head, meaning that—no matter where your curly kale or miniature bok choy may reside—the flexible Eno sprayer is bound to find it.
About the Manufacturer: The stunning range of bath, kitchen, and shower fittings offered by manufacturer Dornbracht throughout their 60 + years exemplifies their facility with what they refer to as “the spirit of water.” The firm’s longtime collaboration with designer Dieter Sieger first bore fruit in the form of the Domani single-level mixer and has continued in recent years with the iconic Tara. Today, Dornbracht and Sieger Design continue to “open new areas and set the bathroom free from its architectural limitations.”
