The birth of an icon: Strangely I had the idea based around a farm. On an old farm our relationship with water is very simple. You get the water from a source. There is a pipe, you have a bucket, you have a pump. And so the first idea was to make something so simple. We just need to have the water, the beauty of water. Ph. Starck
Inspired by historic well pumps. AXOR Starck designed by Starck. With modern pin handle. Or with classic feather handle. Iconic!
AXOR Starck Organic alludes to its beauty: a branch, a water droplet. It offers a sensuous experience of water. With the innovative shower spray.
I have an instinct that allows me to go straight to the heart of the subject. For 25 years with AXOR, these collections are exactly that. The center of the subject is water. Water is what we drink, it's our life. There is beauty in water and so the more materiality you add around water, less it is beautiful.” Ph. Starck
“Happy Birthday to Axor, and to me - 25 years ago, when creating the first collection, the idea was based on the beauty of water. I wanted to create a design that was deeply, structurally respectful of water, something timeless, something that people would have for life. Because water is life.” Ph.S Starck
“Looking back over the collections of the past 25 years, we can understand why these models are still a growing success today. From the start, there was a clear vision of making absolutely timeless models and collections based on the right quality, the right intelligence and the right ergonomics. There is simply no reason why these models would become obsolete. As long as water is liquid, they are a success.” Ph. Starck
