Well-known French designer Philippe Starck has designed the Axor Starck Organic bathroom collection for German brand Axor. The new faucet collection combines a unique, organic design with a responsible way to handle water. Following is a description from the producer, “Starck focused on the essence of the object and used this as the inspiration for his new collection. Its unique, organic-minimalist design features harmonious lines reminiscent of shapes seen in nature. The provocative and sculpturally captivating chrome fittings seem to grow organically out of their points of installation like branches of a tree.
The two handles blend in visually with the body of the faucet. No matter what position the handles may be in – they will reflect a perfect image. Harmonious and ergonomical, they naturally indicate the current setting. A standout in the bath, Axor Starck Organic will suit with the most diverse range of bathroom styles.
The faucets in the new collection allow for water and energy to be used intuitively, ergonomically and economically. Water flow and temperature are controlled separately. With Axor Starck Organic, the water is turned on and off at the end of the spout. As this function is more frequently used, it is positioned close to the water outlet, which allows for easy steering of the quantity of water and prevents over-splash. The temperature is regulated at the top of the faucet as it is less frequently used. Should one want to manually change the temperature, one can easily turn the top of the fitting for hot or cold options. The spout/handle hybrid is designed for use with the thumb- for the most instinctual and comfortable operation.”
