3D Printed Faucet, DXV by American Standard
The Blade 3D printed faucet represents the next evolution of additive manufacturing in the plumbing product world. The faucet – and its associated lavatory – is designed to surprise and delight the user with a unique water experience. It is a pure expression of reduction in design, where the product takes second seat to the user’s experience of water. Blade is printed directly in stainless steel and is finished by hand to add that extra human touch that defines true luxury.
