We are delighted to be associated with the exclusive launch of another stunning design from Philippe Starck in the shape of a glass bodied open ended spout tap that looks, as well as functions, beautifully. Indeed when describing his new design, Philippe said “Axor Starck V is a revolution, the essence of minimalism, a vortex, this wonder of nature, surrounded by complete transparency,” and we could not have described it better.
The Axor Starck V was the subject of a lot of research by the Hansgrohe technicians until they finally perfected the vortex principal which is the secret of this exclusive mixer. The Axor Starck V is certainly beautiful, but importantly it is functional as well. With the very easy-click-in design and safety-stop function, this makes it really easy to remove the glass body from its base to clean it.
The material itself is also very carefully selected, Hansgrohe used crystal glass, which is top quality and importantly this is dirt resistant, you can even put the glass body into the dishwasher! In addition to the chrome and high gloss white, you have a choice of twelve different finishes, for example brushed nickel for the base and a sandblasted crystal glass variant for the body.
