For lovers of Italian design
and those able to splurge on high end hardware: Al Dente showerhead
. Designed by Mattia Vittori, Davide Bordin, and Nicola Gibertini, the steel spout pours water through an orange or green polypropylene diffusor to create the "al dente" stream. The diffusor looks to us like a pasta strainer, so although the overall design looks cool, we'd be surprised if the feeling was equally as good (and offered enough pressure).
Available through Moss online for $370.
