The Axor Starck V faucet is fluid and transparent, just like the water that free-falls into the sink vessel through it. Presented at the Milan Design Week, the washbasin mixer is the brainchild of Axor and designer Philippe Starck for Hansgrohe.
A new, sensual water experience combined with a powerful, sculptural design: Axor Starck Organic is stripped of anything unnecessary and completely harmonious in its design concept. The transparent spout, made of crystal glass, illustrates the water vortex in this organic and sculptural form. When the mixer is turned on, the water vortex whirls around elegantly in the mixer and gushes out of the spout like a waterfall. When turned-off, the glass mixer blends in unobtrusively with its surroundings.
An upright joystick with symmetry and clear geometric shapes, it creates an impressive outlet for the water. Available in white, chrome or brass, it comes as a single lever basin mixer, a 2-hole basin mixer and a single lever mixer version for washbowl, the Axor Starck V combines technical know-how with the aesthetic design.
The faucet also tells the story of the family business: the Hansgrohe family’s passion for water is reflected in its design concept, which is both artistic and functional. “My father Klaus Grohe has long been preoccupied with exploring the vortex phenomenon. His idea of using the vortex to enable people to experience water was fundamental in the creation of this mixer”, Philippe Grohe, Head of the Axor brand was quoted as saying.
