The source of modernity
WE QUESTION THE STATUS QUO
All revolutionary ideas and developments start by questioning the status quo. That’s because we often accept things as they have always been, without asking whether they can be improved. The existing status quo is very sobering and provides pause for thought. On the one hand we have the ever-growing number of plastic bottles that are practically inundating our planet. On the other hand, the filtration products currently on the market don’t really provide a solution either. That’s because they are full of what is in most instances outdated technology and feature far too much plastic in those components that come into contact with water – they often promise more than they can deliver.
THE 10 INNOVATIONS PLAN
Engineers Dr Monique Bissen and Josef Schucker therefore turned all the accepted wisdom on its head and developed a 10 Innovations Plan that makes the LUQEL Water Station a completely new quality experience in every regard – into a source of modernity.
The problem with many water dispensers on the market is the huge amount of noise they emit at every push of the button, making them a permanent source of disturbance. This is another problem LUQEL has tackled, coming up with a low-noise solution. Something appreciated by private households and businesses alike.
STAINLESS STEEL INSTEAD OF PLASTIC
Unlike other commercial water filters, LUQEL dispenses with the use of plastic in its water-conducting components. This means that after being filtered, the water no longer comes into contact with plastic. So no microplastics can enter, and the flavour remains unchanged. Instead, LUQEL uses high-quality materials such as stainless steel and glass.
Virtually all water dispensers on the market use an internal storage tank with a cooling system so that users can quickly draw water at their desired temperature. This approach of a constant stand-by mode uses unnecessary amounts of electricity. Thanks to a newly designed cooling system, LUQEL provides real-time heating and cooling that only consumes energy when water is drawn.
