Vitality of Water
A water vortex is a fascinating spectacle of nature. Axor Starck V is a designer product which visualises this extraordinary water experience and brings it home to your own wash basin. The transparent glass body enables you to experience water so vividly, like never before.
Axor Starck V was inspired by a passion for water. Axor is fascinated by the beauty of the water vortex, as it occurs in the natural world. In Philippe Starck, Axor discovered a design partner who makes this water phenomenon visible in a unique mixer design. For the designer, Axor Starck V is “a revolution, the essence of minimalism, a vortex, this wonder of nature, surrounded by complete transparency.”
The result is a unique eye-catching feature at the wash basin: with its sensuous, organic shapes and sculptural appearance, the mixer becomes a well that is used on a daily basis, not to mention a really unusual bathroom object.
In addition to the familiar chrome, unusual materials create a unique appeal. The porcelain spout with a chrome base creates a sense of modern elegance. The combination of glass spout and white base also integrates perfectly into modern bathrooms.
Axor Starck V is not just a sensational designer item for the bathroom. The elegant glass mixer is also of a high technical standard. The easy-click-in design and safety-stop function enable the glass body to be removed from its base, for example to clean it in the dishwasher, without having to turn off the water beforehand.
The spout is also designed to be functional: to ensure that the water jet is optimally aligned with the wash basin, the spout swivels 360°.
The material has been carefully selected: the crystal glass is high-quality, manufactured in an eco-friendly manner and is durable as well. In conjunction with the natural aspect, great emphasis was also placed on sustainability: Axor Starck V handles water resources really responsibly. Thanks to the flow limiter, the mixer only consumes an economical 4 litres per minute.
