Philippe Starck Designs A Water-Saving Faucet

Berlin-based company Hansgrohe together with French designer Philippe Starck have designed a luxury bathroom collection.

The line ‘Axor Starck Organic’ features minimalist, organic design and helps users to responsibly handle water and energy.

The faucet has low-flow rates of 3.5 liters per minute, and 90 individual outlets for water to spread over a large surface area.

Flow rates can be boosted to 5 liters per minute when needed.

The tap also has two handles that lets users control water flow and temperature separately.

To on/off the water flow, users can turn the end of the spout; while the top of the spout is used to control temperature.
