MY taps by Micheal Young for Jougor

January 11th, 2016 by retail design blog

Industrial designer Michael Young has created a collection of fluidly shaped taps for Chinese bathroomware company Jougor.


The stainless steel faucets come in a range of configurations, including wall-mounted versions and horizontally placed handles that can be used as drinking fountains. The taps’ stem-shaped handles taper smoothly out of a circular base, creating a flowing shape that is repeated in the collection’s set of accessories. These include towel rails, hooks and soap dishes. The range includes designs for both the bathroom and kitchen, including faucets with double or single tap options.


The company used its own bespoke equipment to achieve the faucets’ mirrored finish. According to Jougor the material is lead-free, anti-bacterial and oxidation-proof – allowing it to retain its gloss over long period of time. “The uniqueness of Michael’s work lies in the constant questioning of typologies combined with the pioneering passion for technology,” said the company. “It is with his mind we set about creating a new range of faucets to revolutionise the way we think about them,” it added.


“It is design as industrial art that interests me, not just as a limited edition, but on a scale of mass production,” added Young, who recently collaborated with Italian electronics company Brionvega to launch speakers that pack into a miniature satchel.
