Alessi Sense by Oras is an electronic faucet that combines design and sustainable technology. Sense enables us to save water in an innovative way, without sacrificing esthetics and usability. Sense brings us closer to our nature by allowing us to save the vital element of water by the virtue of a human touch.
Rodrigo Torres designed Sense for Alessi. It comes in two versions, Il Bagno (bathroom) and La Cucina (kitchen). The technology is developed by Oras, the industry leader in electronic faucets.
