Axor has scooped the Wallpaper Design Award for Best Domestic Design for its Axor Starck V transparent washbasin mixer for the third time.
The designer brand of mixer and shower manufacturer Hansgrohe, Axor’s first transparent mixer was part of a collaboration with Phillippe Starck and was awarded the prize after being judged on its performance by a selection of industry experts.
“Receiving the Wallpaper* Design Award is a great honour for us, and it confirms our innovative strength, as well as the quality of our design process,” explains Philippe Grohe, head of Axor.
“My father’s intuition that water could visibly be brought to the foreground through the vortex, was the starting point in the development of Axor Starck V. In our long-time friend Philippe Starck, we found the perfect design partner to create a shape around the vortex. Axor Starck V is the result of technical know-how and over 100 years of experience in handling water. We are delighted with this expression of appreciation for our work,” Philippe Grohe continues.
