Simin Qiu, a student at London’s Royal College of Art, has invented a unique water faucet that uses the laws of physics to save water.

Qiu was inspired by the many sacred spirals that exist in nature, in plants, shells and many other examples of natural spiraling phenomena. Qiu also noticed that water spiraled in nature in many circumstances, especially when in a pipeline.

Researching further, Qiu found that water actually slows down while in a spiral or pipeline, so he set out to create a water faucet that would create a spiral, and hopefully save water.

This goal led Qiu to design a water facet called “Swirl”, which sends the water from the faucet in a pipeline, and allegedly saves up to 15% on water usage! Qiu then created three different designs which will each save money on your water bill, although every faucet has a unique pattern.

Qiu’s Swirl design won an iF Design concept award in 2014, and he hopes to be able to distribute the faucet on a mass scale in the near future.
