The law is an ass

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

I’m surprised there isn’t actually a string of ambulance chasers pursuing cases of disgruntled hotel residents who are claiming scalds as a result of trying to work the flow and temperature controls while standing in their ensuite showers. Perhaps Italian firm CEA bore this thought in mind when it designed its lovely Regolo stainless steel faucet and mixer. Apparently, one sliding action allows you to control both the flow and the water temperature; meaning that even a Luddite like me can relax in my birthday suit without having to think about a legal one.
