The designer based the shape of the Starck faucet range on traditional water pumps, such as you might find on a farm, simplifying the shape to two intersecting cylinders crowned with either a pin or feather handle.
The goal was for this design – created 25 years ago but still just as relevant today – to focus attention on the water itself.
"The idea was to make a design that was deeply, structurally respectful of water," said Starck. "It's our life. Water is life. And there is a beauty in water."
The Starck tapware range has options for the basin, bathtub and shower, including a shower column with RainAir technology that cocoons the user in its mist and a touch-free sensor-activated electronic mixer for the basin.
The collection is available in a range of Axor FinishPlus finishes, including brushed red gold or gold optic.
