Ceiling-mounted mixer tap

Or faucet, if you're from a less-civilized geography.
  [vote for,

Mixer taps in the kitchen are Baked and WKTE. But they are a pain to clean round, and especially behind. The kitchen staff complain all the time, and the necessary corrective whippings are becoming tiresome (except for the nubile young scullery maids, of course. [MB] is indecently enthusiastic about it, to be honest).

The new BorgCo design comes down from the ceiling on a rigid pillar, leaving the entire worktop area as a smooth, uninterrupted cleanable surface.

That is all.

       We used to have a wall-mounted mixer tap in our kitchen for the same reason. It had the advantage over the proposed ceiling mounted taps in that you could actually reach the off/on knobs.

       It's 100% baked..... do an image search for "ceiling tap". Now if you transfer the waste plug hole unto the ceiling instead, that will be highly unbaked.

       Oh, did we not mention that the plughole is in the ceiling too, using a small closely-focussed graviton polarity generator ?   

       The plughole is also in the ceiling, as is the overflow.

       Anathema to kitchen designs placing the sink at a window, or cupboards over the sink, or homes with water heaters in the basement. Apart from that, it sounds like an option.

       Why not just Bluetooth the tap to the water supply, and avoid pipes altogether competely?

       Stove mounted bib for filling pots and pans needed, to reduce the nuisance turning to and fro the sink and stovetop

       Inductive wetting wouldn't need taps at all
