On the 19th September almost 1000 VIP guests gathered in Berlin to celebrate the spectacular unveiling of Philippe Starck's new range for Axor, Organic.
Axor has been working with the designer Philippe Starck for 20 years.
In 1994, they took the sanitation industry by surprise with Axor Starck. In conjunction with
the salon d’eau, the image of a modern living room/bathroom in one. This collection became a revolutionary part of bathroom history.
Philippe Starck is a tireless free spirit and one of the most brilliant designers of our time. Over and over again, he touches us with his designs and makes us think. The vision of a better world influences his creations.
The time has come once again for a new dimension in bathrooms.
And who other than Philippe Starck could be better suited to join us in considering a revolutionary way of using water.
With Axor Starck Organic, he creates harmony between design and technology, ecology and economy and the heart and head.
According to Philippe Starck, harmony is precisely what we most require as humans.
A new bathroom collection was therefore created that equally appeals to the heart and the head.
The Axor Starck Organic design is sculptural and characterised by slender beauty.
The two handles are harmoniously integrated into the mixer body.
Such a wide mixer shower spray guarantees a
particularly sensual experience under the water.
As when showering, the water droplets fall gently onto
the skin, soaking your entire hands. Yet at the same time,
the new jet uses less water than conventional mixers.
▸ New jet former with 90 tiny openings:
softer, more voluminous mixer shower spray with
an experience comparable to that offered by the
Raindance 100 hand shower from Hansgrohe
▸ Broad jet:
thorough wetting of the hands
▸ Flow limitation:
normal spray with an efficient 3.5 l/min
The newly designed two handle mixer from Axor Starck Organic is the next step in the
evolution of mixer operation – away from the classic single lever mixers, with which the
temperature and water volume are always simultaneously controlled. The mixer not only
consumes water economically but also moves ergonomically: the temperature control is
positioned at the top of the mixer while the regularly used handle for controlling the water
volume is practically positioned at the lower end of the mixer on the spout.
