Philippe Starck collaborates on Hansgrohe bathroom range

The new Axor Starck Organic bathroom collection is a collaboration between Axor, the design brand for Hansgrohe and renowned designer, Philippe Starck.

Developed over a course of three years, the range combines many aspects that challenges the means of handling water.

“Philippe Starck was the right person to talk with about this project. In the 20 years we have worked together so far, he again and again inspired us to come up with new ways of challenging established patterns of thought, behaviour and design,” said Philippe Grohe, head of designer brand, Axor.


Starck explained what had driven him at the beginning of the project.

“A new intuition had come to me. It was more of a question of ‘what is life, what is the energy of life?’ And I started to work- not in another way, but from a different angle of view with the same subject of the minimum,” he said.

Focusing on the essence of things is what Starck felt inspired by for this collection. The organic and minimalist design and harmonious lines being reminiscent of the shapes we see in nature, is the true character of the Axor Starck Organic collection.

Especially for the most frequently used wash basin mixers, the company’s spray research laboratory developed a new kind of water spray, consisting of 90 individual outlets, each producing countless gentle drops of water.

The range sets a new standard with a consumption of only 3.5 litres of water per minute, without compromising in functionality.

“The collection is yet another revolution, a new cocktail of highest technology and good philosophy,” Starck concluded.
