Using less water with a better experience

Sustainability Aspects: Reducing the normal water consumption with 30% to 3.5 liter per minute with the sense of having more water flowing over your hands/head. Control flow and temperature seperately

Organic Starck

How much thought can go into a bathroom collection? And how much heart? How can we make life in the bathroom a bit better and improve our quality of life? And how can we show our respect for nature and the world of tomorrow? Axor Starck Organic balances design and technology, ecology and economy, the heart and head.

The broadest ever mixer shower spray gives us a highly sensual experience of water. As when showering, the pearly water droplets fall gently onto the skin, wetting your entire hands. Yet at the same time, the new jet uses less water than conventional mixers. The control concept allows us to experience our approach to water more consciously.
The ground-breaking two handle mixer integrated in one shape is the next step in the evolution of mixer control. The temperature and the water volume can be controlled separately – a departure from traditional single lever mixers where temperature and water volume are always controlled simultaneously.

Water volume control:

  • The water volume can be adjusted between two fixed levels.
  • The normal position (3.5 l/min.) gives you a wonderful experience of water while also saving water.
  • The booster function has a higher flow rate (5 l/min.).
  • The volume can be adjusted gradually between these two levels for complete water volume control.

As the handle is placed directly at the water outlet, the mixer is convenient to use and stays clean.
