Concept

“The rhythm of time, the flow of water: both mark moments, emotions, the joys of all of us. TimeAster expresses the perfect flow in both perspective.”

The collection TimeAster, strongly inspired by luxury watches in which the rhythm of time is similar to the flow of water, was built facing the daily challenge of design and involving the best manufacturing partners.

The maniacal level of detail has been faced up as a desire to create an exclusive and luxury line for bath. Architect Carlo Santi designed the collection Aster in 1982, and its designes is the background of the TimeAster collection.

It is not a simple restyling but a technical and aesthetic evolution applied to mixers, where the timeless concept dominated the product trend, as for every Stella collection. The main features of TimeAster are: a new style concept of the tap, mechanical precision and attention to details. The classic configuration with three holes is the more traditional shape for TimeAster, which expresses its extreme innovation in the handle. Moreover, the dial display is made in etched brass and the coloration is obtained through the process of rhodium plating, like for jewelry.

The indices are made of steel, as well as Stella logo and the words "Made in Italy", borrowed from handcrafted watchmaking factories. The anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal ensures to be Waterproof, and this peculiarity is tested through the use of autoclave to ensure the longevity of the handle in any kind of environment.

Handles are finished alternating polished and brushed chrome, declined in different Stella finishes and presented in two versions with different diameters (52 mm and 65 mm). The first version, with the diameter of 52 mm, is the most faithful to the original project of Carlo Santi and it is proposed with two different fused spouts, in high and low version. The second version, with a diameter 65 mm, is presented with an ad hoc neck low spout in harmony with the larger diameter of the handles.
