They do everything better in Switzerland, don’t they? Chocolate, watches, nuclear bunkers, Peter Zumthor, banking, the list goes on. And water. Pictured is Swiss firm KWC’s ERA, an ‘ultimate sink and tap experience’ aimed at luxury developments. The stainless steel sink, sunk into the worktop, has an invisible overflow and bevelled waste cover, while water from the Gravity Spout tap will ‘cascade gracefully like a fountain or waterfall’. Bear that in mind next time you’re trying to soak burned-on cheese off your fondue pot.
