Smooth surfaces, soft curves and straight-lined contours are characteristic of the design of Álika. The mixer car-tridge is located at the back and forms a seamless unit with the lateral handle. When pressure is exerted in tap direction, water will flow; one turn adjusts the temperature. The disc-shaped cartridge inside the handle is made of reinforced ceramic. The entire tap is made of cast brass; the surface consists of chrome.
