AXOR Starck V
Very slowly, a water vortex is generated and rises until it flows from the transparent spout. Never before has one been able to watch how water works inside a mixer in such a live way. It si made possible by a spout that all-round designer Philippe Starck created for the AXOR range by Hansgrohe, a spout which not only appeals with its unusual shape in glass or porcelain but also turns out to be extremely practical in everyday use: With a simple click, the spout can be removed and cleaned in the dishwasher. The models of this modern interpretation of a fountain look best on a washbasin of minimalist design.
This cross section of a tree looks deceptively genuine and some may assume that a sequoia in some far-away forest had to die for it. Not so. This carpet has been made in such a high-quality way that each year ring precisely stands out. It would thus indeed be possible to calculate the age of this fictitious tree based on the different sizes. It is thus all the more pleasant that it is developed and produced from enduring materials according to the cradle-to-cradle principle. Thus the carpet can be 100 per cent recycled and again fed into the raw material cycle. The material can also be installed in the contract sector.
