The faucet design is inspired by Philippe Starck a french designer who is known for love of water. Water is the greatest inspiration for this mastermind of interior designs to household designs. The Axor Starck V faucet design is a glass spout which creates a vortex of spiral water. This faucet design was engineered and made in Germany. According to Philippe Starck, "Axor Starck V is characterized by an aesthetic, functional and sustainable product development. For instance, the spout is formed from hand-sanded organic crystal, a particularly robust, durable material. In addition, the mixer offers a reduced flow rate of 4 l/minute – without compromising the water experience. Functional comfort is also provided by the rotatable and removable spout: it is easily installed and detached for cleaning in the dishwasher".
