About


Existing faucets are stuck in the past.  Until now, we’ve accepted that, because there hasn’t been a better way. Ever been in any of these situations?  We have every day! That's the reason for deciding to reinvent the faucet - there had to be a better way. 

Rinse facial cleanser without splashing.
Take pills or vitamins without painful bending.
Easily rinse shaving cream.

At NASONI, we created a faucet that leaves you feeling clean, refreshed, and ready to meet what’s next.  We promise your first experience with your Da Vinci will be a lasting one.

Our #1 priority here at Nasoni is your happiness. We stand by our faucets 100%, no matter what, no questions asked, no holds barred, no ifs, no ands, no buts. If you are not completely delighted with your Nasoni fountain faucet in the first 30 days, we will resolve any issue.  Refund it. Send a new fountain faucet.  Whatever it takes.  Just contact our Customer Service team. And after these first 30 days, your faucet comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Happiness guaranteed.

WHICH FAUCET DO YOU NEED? CENTERSET VS WIDESPREAD

Check your bathroom to determine if you need the 4" Centerset (left) or 8" Widespread (right)

PLEASE NOTE: WE ONLY HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF FAUCETS AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE SHIPPING, WHEN THEY SELL OUT THE NEXT BACKERS WILL HAVE TO WAIT 3 MONTHS FOR THE NEXT PRODUCTION RUN.  WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND BACKING NOW AND GET YOURS BY THE DECEMBER HOLIDAYS!

Thinking differently about how we use water at home is where real change begins. Faucets alone won’t solve our water crises, but we are proud to contribute to a global, water conscious movement. Nasoni is an official Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) WaterSense partner and has joined the Alliance for Water Efficiency, North America's advocate for water-efficient products.

We are working to inspire all generations to take up the water-saving mantle. The average American uses up to 4.4 gallons of water each time they brush when they leave the water running, and they brush at least twice a day. If all 329 million Americans did that they would use more than a billion gallons of water just brushing alone. And the best part is? You don't even notice that you're saving water because it's simply natural to use a water fountain!  

Nasoni is an official WaterSense partner and a member of the Alliance for Water Efficiency. WaterSense and its partners are committed to bringing water-efficient products to market, labeling new homes, and spreading the word about the need for smart water use. 

Stately. Handsome. Inspiring. Terms befitting of a faucet that is unlike any other you’ve ever experienced before. The sleek design and contoured lines complement an extraordinary basin fixture that serves as a testament to great taste and commands attention in any room.

NASONI’s line of innovative faucets combines the convenience of a water fountain with the contemporary charm of a sophisticated sink fixture. Crafted from premium-grade solid brass, each model provides a level of durability that will stand the test of time. Ultra-exclusive PVD coatings prevent tarnish and corrosion and ensure that your faucet will always remain just as lustrous as the day it was installed.   

A revolutionary new concept in the world of sink fixtures, Nasoni Fountain Faucets utilize a dual method of water delivery. For starters, you’ll still be able to get water from the downspout as you would with a traditional faucet.

But with a flip of a switch, the flow can be redirected through a spout at the top of the faucet, bringing you a magnificent arc of pure, clean water whenever you want. It’s like having a water fountain right in the comfort of your home!  And just like that, your mornings begin to sound a whole lot better.   

Easily rinse after brushing with fresh, clean water!

At Nasoni, we understand that not all city water is equal. That's why we created the Nasoni under-counter filter. It's NSF 42 & 53 certified and made in America. It comes with everything you need for a typical installation in your vanity, including 20" braided stainless steel cold water connecting lines. And, no more bottled water to buy!  

Simply add $129 to any reward level to add a Nasoni undercounter water filter to your reward. 

Nasoni's award-winning, patented fountain faucets were designed and engineered in the US, and manufactured in Asia at our ISO 9001 certified factory that also makes bath products for IKEA, Franke, and other prestigious companies.  We then brought them back to the US to IAPMO R&T in Ontario, California, the leading certification agency in North America, where they were certified to meet or exceed all applicable US and Canadian standards. 

Unlike all other Kickstarter projects, our faucets are already designed, engineered, certified, and manufactured and are ready for YOU!  We have removed the risk. We need you, the Kickstarter community, to help us get the word out about how great they are. 

We selected our factory partner with great care. The factory used by Nasoni was selected to ensure safe, responsible working conditions, and the highest quality standards. Our factory meets and exceeds all environmental production standards, and is ISO 9001 certified.  Below are images of YOUR faucets actually being made! You are getting the opportunity to be the very first to own one. 

These are real, lead-free cast brass faucets! They weigh about 6 lbs and are engineered to last a lifetime. Here we show what it's like pouring the lead-free brass into the mold to create our brass casting.

PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) uses a state-of-the-art process that molecularly bonds the finish to the faucet, creating a super-hard surface that is by far the most durable available today. Products with a PVD finish will not corrode, discolor, or tarnish. Of all coating processes, PVD is the most environmentally benign. The PVD process does not create any of the hazardous waste associated with other types of coatings (e.g. electroplating or painting). PVD coatings also contribute to the longer life of products, which has positive benefits to many aspects of the environment, such as reduced landfill volume.    

Each of our faucets is assembled by hand at our ISO-9001 certified factory. Starting with good old-fashioned craftsmanship featuring solid brass construction, we add state-of-the-art ¼ turn ceramic disc valves with limited lifetime warranties and quality controls that meet or exceed government codes, including national and local lead-free and rigorous California water conservation standards. A matching PVD finished pop-up drain is included. 

We are offering Da Vinci Fountain Faucets to the Kickstarter community at discount rates that will never be offered again.  Why?  Because our goal is to get them into the hands of innovators and early adopters like you that will help us spread the word on how awesome these faucets are, which in turn will help us reach a larger market. Win-win!

Want to feel like you have renovated your bathroom but don't have the time nor budget for a major redo? Faucets are the crown jewels of the bathroom, simply replace your old faucet with a Da Vinci Fountain Faucet and it will feel like a full renovation! 

Stately. Handsome. Inspiring. Terms befitting of a faucet that is unlike any other you’ve ever experienced before. The sleek design and contoured lines complement an extraordinary basin fixture that serves as a testament to great taste and commands attention in any room.

NASONI’s line of innovative faucets combines the convenience of a water fountain with the contemporary charm of a sophisticated sink fixture. Crafted from premium-grade solid brass, each model provides a level of durability that will stand the test of time. Ultra-exclusive PVD coatings prevent tarnish and corrosion and ensure that your faucet will always remain just as lustrous as the day it was installed.

Silky-smooth operation and drip-free performance are achieved by the included ceramic disc valve system, heralded for its ability to outperform and outlast other types of faucet mechanisms. Every component used in the manufacturing of our products meets or exceeds industry standards and was selected to provide years of uncompromised service.

The pièce de résistance of the Da Vinci family of premium fountain faucets, this fixture exudes an air of distinction and elegance that one would expect from more expensive models. First glances become lasting impressions for anyone that allows their senses to be pampered by both the streamlined aesthetics and world-class performance of a faucet that is light years ahead of the curve.

Besides our eternal gratitude, we’ll assemble a NASONI Faucet Fountain with great care and send it to you along with an installation manual.  With the centerset faucet you can unbox it, install it, use it right away - it’s as quick and as simple as that. With a widespread faucet, although it can be a DIY project, we recommend a plumber.  

Nasoni's revolutionary, award-winning fountain faucets are Patented and Trademarked in the US and China, the additional US and Foreign patents pending. We're the only ones that can do this! And that's a good thing because we're doing it right.

Not all faucet types work with every sink, so it's important to make sure the faucet you choose will fit your sink or basin. The Da Vinci line of fountain faucets by Nasoni is currently both centerset and widespread types. Centerset faucets are made for basins with three holes and have handles that are 4 inches apart. They combine a spout and handles on a single base unit.  The widespread faucet is for three-hole basins. They have three separate pieces — two handles and a spout — and the spacing between the handles is 8 inches.

NOTE: Please do not purchase if you have a wall-mounted, single-hole, or taller vessel faucet meant to complement a vessel sink that sits above the countertop, as they will not work with Nasoni Fountain Faucets. 

Ever bought a faucet from a big box retail store, only to have it leak within a few years? Faucet manufacturers all sell exclusive models to the big-box stores with plastic internals/drain assemblies. Big-box stores offer low prices in order to attract customers, and in order to hit the low prices these retailers want, suppliers need to cut costs on the product. But you won’t know that until you take them apart. Cheap prices = cheap components and inferior faucets as a result.

Nasoni only manufactures only high-quality faucets with full brass internals, you can feel the difference when you pick it up. Notice the difference below when the downspouts are removed.  

  • The use of the fountain feature of the fountain faucet is much safer than the use of the non-disposable cup when both are exposed to the aerosol effect.
  • The fountain feature of the fountain faucet can remove bacteria from tap water caused by the aerosol effect.
  • The fountain feature of the fountain faucet can remove 88 MPN/100 ml - 866 MPN/100 ml of E.coli after the fountain feature of the fountain faucet was kept open for 10 seconds.
  • The fountain feature of the fountain faucet has a lower risk of contracting bacteria from bioaerosols as compared with the non-disposable cup due to the smaller size of the fountain nozzle (opening) when compared to the diameter of a cup.

We have been working on perfecting Da Vinci Fountain Faucets for more than 5 years and we have developed numerous iterations, 3D printed models, and production prototypes. Along the way, we adopted existing, proven technologies using certified components in new ways to guarantee performance and to create our Dynamic Fountain Flow™ technology. The result is a patent-pending breakthrough in an industry that has fostered remarkably little innovation in well over a century. NASONI's new faucets are packed full of patented features and meticulously engineered in the US. They are designed from the ground up to be the best faucets on the planet. 

Easily rinse facial cleanser without splashing.

Lucky for our backers, our fountain faucets are proven already through a production pilot, and the first production order has been delivered to our warehouse and is ready for you!

We first 3D printed our CAD models until we got the design just right, and then we built numerous production quality prototypes and installed them in our homes to test and ensure perfect functionality. And now we're ready for you to help us get them out and in use to show the world how much better life can be with a fountain faucet. 

Nasoni is committed to being a “green” company, through the nature of our work, the way we pursue it, and our products.

Unlike cheap Big Box retail faucets that are typically made of zinc and plastic parts that fail over a short period of time, Da Vinci Fountain Faucets are made of the highest quality materials and backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty for the original purchaser.

For our faucets, Nasoni has chosen to use a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finish; of all coating processes, it is the most environmentally benign. The PVD process does not create any of the hazardous waste associated with other types of coating such as electroplating or painting. PVD coatings, in and of themselves enhance environmental protection. PVD coatings also contribute to the longer life of products, which has positive benefits to many aspects of the environment, such as reduced landfill volume.

Nasoni is committed to environmental stewardship. We recognize the necessity for the highest possible environmental sensitivity in all of our work.

Da Vinci fountain faucets are designed for longevity, as they are made of solid, lead-free brass. Brass is prized for faucets because it is very resistant to corrosion, has a relatively low melting point — making it easy to cast — is soft enough to machine with little effort yet hardy enough to endure the rigors of life as a faucet, takes finishes such as PVD coatings very well, and is easily recycled. About 80% of the brass used in new faucets was previously used to make something else.

The packaging is recyclable, as the packaging is made from recyclable materials, including EPE foam. Expanded polyethylene (EPE) is an environmentally safe, non-toxic foaming material that can be recycled and helps to reduce environmental pollution.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program specification for bathroom sink faucets allows a maximum flow rate of no more than 1.5 GPM for bathroom faucets, 32% below the industry standard of 2.2 GPM. Da Vinci faucets are below that, as they are California Energy Commission (CEC) compliant at 1.2gpm for additional water savings. However, when in fountain mode, these faucets become the highest water-saving faucets on the planet, as the flow rate is reduced to .26gpm, yet still providing the perfect flow rate for the many uses a water fountain in the bathroom can provide!

 Our factory is ISO 9001 certified and follows green practices in providing products for other companies such as IKEA, Franke, and others.

Our factory specializes in PVD coatings. The PVD process is more environmentally friendly than alternatives such as electroplating and painting. Unlike these there are no gases, water waste and other residue released.

Fulfillment and distribution is handled by our partner, Fulfilltopia out of Norfolk, VA. Fulfilltopia recently switched from bubble wrap to an eco-friendly high-tech honeycomb paper packing product called Geami. Gemini is all-natural, 100% recyclable, renewable and biodegradable, and consists of either entirely or partially recycled content. Geami also helps to reduce packing time and materials, resulting in significant cost savings. Fufilltopia also has numerous other energy savings initiatives underway to reduce energy consumption.

6 GREEN CERTIFICATIONS: Our faucets have achieved 6 green certifications from IAPMO R&T. This is also the greenest faucet ever made in terms of water savings. The reason? When the downward flow of water is shut off and the water fountain created through our patented Dynamic Fountain Flow technology, the flow rate is reduced from 2.2gpm (normal faucet) down to .26gpm, an 88% reduction!

Risks and challenges

We first 3D printed our CAD models until we got the fountain faucet design just right, and then we built numerous production quality prototypes and installed them in our homes to test and ensure perfect functionality through a yearlong production pilot. We then went through months of formal plumbing certification testing for the US and Canada.

The first production order has been built and delivered to our warehouse in Norfolk, Virginia and is ready for delivery to you. With just about all of the risk already mitigated, we're ready for you to use these award-winning faucets and show the world how much better life can be with a fountain faucet.

We're deeply committed to and excited about delivering a high-quality product, on time, that we know you'll enjoy for a long time to come.

Thank you for your support! We are deeply grateful that you're on this journey with us! In case you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us at support@nasoni.com

Notes on Faucet Compatibility and Installation:
We provide clear guidance on the compatibility requirements herein and in our FAQs. Backers are responsible for reviewing the​ requirements we’ve provided and confirming compatibility when making their pledge. While we strongly recommend the widespread fountain faucets be installed by a professional plumber, installation manuals are included with each faucet in multiple languages, and will also be available on http://nasoni.com along with installation videos and other helpful tips.
