Winning project


Designed by: Ekatarina Epifanova (Russian Federation) and Lidia Grits (Italy)

UVCleaner 1

Faucet equipped with a UV-light cabin to disinfect objects such as mobile phones while the user washes his/her hands. The project focuses on objects that can spread coronavirus; specifically, on mobile phones, defined as “the third hand we never wash.” The device is made up of a faucet, a soap dispenser and a dryer, which activate with a touchless system, as well as a small cabin to place personal items. While the user washes his/her hands, the objects are disinfected with a UV-light system and can be afterwards collected with clean hands and without contact with risk surfaces.
