March 2015. Mixer with a fine finish: the revolutionary washbasin mixer AXOR Starck V is now also available with a classic touch. Since September 2015, AXOR offers two new versions of the crystal spout – diamond and bevel cuts – to complement the mixer’s base. Alternatively, the removable spout will also be available in white porcelain. The Addition of a Classic Touch to a Modern Design Object "A year after we presented AXOR Starck V for the first time, we are demon-strating that this revolutionary design object can support the entire range of styles, from avant-garde to classic," says Philippe Grohe, Vice President of Design Management at Hansgrohe SE. "With the added selection of spouts, custom finishes for the mixer base, and different handle varieties, we are giving our customers the opportunity to individualize, and to install this mixer in an even broader range of set-tings," the grandson of the company founder Hans Grohe concludes. AXOR Starck V mixer bases are available in fifteen particularly scratch and de-tergent-resistant PVD finishes – including chrome, gold-optic, red-gold, black-chrome, nickel, brass, stainless steel optic, and bronze. Hand-sanded, Classic Diamond and Precious Bevel Cut Versions Augment the Organic Design by Philippe Starck The timeless cuts enhance the new versions of the AXOR Starck V glass spout. The high-quality diamond sanding technique is renowned for pro-ducing harmonious geometrical shapes that refract the light. Bevel cut sanding gives the mixer a beautiful shape with a precious note. The base of the removable spout has been consciously chosen for the placement of the cut edges: water and the vortex remain visible. The mixer integrates particularly well in traditional bathroom ambiences. The Porcelain Spout: Mixer and Washbasin Become One The new, white porcelain spout reveals just how profoundly mixer and washbasin can fuse. Combined with a white base, this modern alternative to the glass cuts becomes one with the washbasin. Like all other versions in the assortment, the white porcelain spout can also be joined with chrome base – there are no limits to individualization with the new AXOR Starck V spouts and bases. Using Technology and Innovation to Create a Compelling Water Ex-perience AXOR Starck V is characterized by an aesthetic, functional and sustainable product development. For instance, the spout is formed from hand-sanded organic crystal, a particularly robust, durable material. In addition, the mixer offers a reduced flow rate of 4 l/minute – without compromising the water experience. Functional comfort is also provided by the rotatable and removable spout: it is easily installed and detached for cleaning in the dishwasher.
