Designed by Rogerseller and developed in partnership with Australia’s leading manufacturer Ram Tapware, Eccentric by Rogerseller pays homage to the quirky genius of the greatest minds in history.
“Albert Einstein’s bizarre habit of picking up used cigarettes, Nikola Tesla’s daily toe exercises and Yoshiro Nakamatsu’s oxygen depriving deep dives are acts that tell of the individualism, wonder and curiosity found in many great scientists, explorers and inventors, and the rebellion against convention that defines them,” says Product Designer Nick Johnston of his inspiration behind the design.
When engaged, Eccentric by Rogerseller embraces quirky genius by progressively revealing an unexpected back-plate featuring cold and hot indicators, thanks to its axis uniquely positioned off-centre.
Using German progressive cartridge technology, Eccentric supports energy saving by opening in a low pressure, cold position which increases in pressure with the turn of the dial. Warm water is introduced past the middle mark, increasing as the dial moves to its furthest open position. This energy-saving technology is particularly useful when warm water isn’t always required.
With a subtle fin to match finger contours, the mixer provides the necessary leverage when slippery. The mixer can be wall or bench mounted and used across basin, bath or shower applications and can be complemented with Eccentric wall mounted bath or basin outlets for a universal aesthetic.
Eccentric has received the 2017 Red Dot Award for Product Design.
