We are really excited about the very latest tap that is in our showroom and we wanted to share this with you as soon as we could. Philippe Starck has excelled himself with this design of tap which he himself describes as “a revolution, the essence of minimalism a vortex, this wonder of nature, surrounded by complete transparency,”
The Axor starck V Spout tap has a glass body with an open ended spout which when operating allows us to see the water forming a vortex so fascinating that many will, we feel sure, just want to see it operate and almost forget why they have turned on the tap in the first place! The glass body and open-ended spout make it possible for us to experience water a completely natural element at home.
Hansgrohe are the manufacturers of this latest masterpiece and are renowned for their technological design and for bringing some stunning designs to the bathroom, the AxorV is just the latest. The spay researchers at Hansgrohe have been working in conjunction with Philippe Stack to try to bring us a way in which we could see the vortex in operation and they have succeeded with this glass bodied product.
However, what has not to be lost it that the tap has to be both functional and made easy to keep clean, they have achieved this with their easy click-in design and safety-stop function make it really easy to remove the glass body from its base to clean it, even without having to close the valve. Naturally the selected crystal glass has also been very carefully chosen and is dirt resistant and can be cleaned in the family dishwasher.
A number of finishes is offered for this revolutionary tap, chrome and high-gloss white variant, together with 12 other exclusive finishes, such as brushed nickel for the base and a sandblasted crystal glass variant for the body.
