Resulting from the development of a prototype made during a one-man exhibition at the Hakgojae Gallery in Seoul, AK/25 is a tap designed by the Korean designer Kim Paik Sun which is part of Aboutwater, the collection created by the partnership between the Fantini and Boffi companies. The PVD Matt Gun metal finish, obtained using a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) treatment, gives the product a special “gunmetal” colour effect somewhere between dark grey and blue. Essentiality of forms, purity of lines and volumes, coherence in the vision of the product and its functions for use are distinctive elements of a design that is a bridge between East and West. In the brass version, the parts of the taps in contact with drinking water do not contain lead in excess of 0.25%.

MATERIALS
PVD Matt gun metal finish.
TECHNOLOGIES
the Matt Gun metal PVD finish is obtained using a PVD treatment which produces the depositing of thin films on metal objects in the vacuum phase that then keeps the surface unaltered. Also used in aerospace and biomedical sectors, it allows the achieving of different shades of colour with non-toxic and biocompatibility characteristics.
