Separation of concerns
The shower control described here resonated with me. Having a separate control for temperature and volume appeals to me as a software developer. But most sinks don't work this way. Instead, you have a tap for hot water and one for cold. I've seen a sink which did have controls as per the shower. I liked it; most other people complained and eventually it was replaced with a more typical Western arrangement. I wonder why the idea doesn't transport well from shower to sink, or if there are places where that is the norm?
