When was the last time you actually looked at a sink? Most of the time they go unnoticed, but in the case of American Standard’s you will not only notice it, you will love it! Their stunning DXV line of products features some of the unique facets you will ever see.
Instead of the standard, completely closed neck, DXV’s designs feature latticework patterns, cutouts and layered metal strips. Surely not what you’d expect in a faucet design. All the faucets were made using a 3D printing technique called selective laser sintering, a computer guided laser beam fuses powdered metal into shape using high heat and pressure.
This is only the first layer of the faucet after it’s sintered, another layer of metal powder is laid on top, this process is repeated until the entire design is ready. Usually, it takes 24 hours to finish plus some time for hand sanding and polishing. Thanks to the laser sintering technology, they were able to conceal small waterways in their design so it appears as if the water magically flows from the faucet, The designs are not available yet but scheduled to go on sale from the company within the next year through a network of exclusive showrooms and retailers.
