AXOR is a pioneer in the creation of avant-garde, technologically superior design objects for luxurious bathrooms and kitchens. The brand’s designer taps, showers and accessories score high in design, craftsmanship and functionality. For more than 25 years, AXOR has brought perfectly developed and constructed design objects to market. The brand enables architects, interior designers and the design-savvy public to shape water-related spaces to eventually reflect the unique personality of the user.
AXOR products can be found in the world’s most luxurious bathrooms and kitchens, and are conceived in collaboration with internationally acclaimed architects and product designers. From Philippe Starck to Barber Osgerby, Antonio Citterio to Jean-Marie Massaud, Patricia Urquiola to Nendo, Phoenix Design to Front, each AXOR design partner brings their own individual style.
For more than 25 years now, AXOR has been instrumental in shaping the evolution of the bathroom with the creation of avant-garde pieces and collections – some of which are considered among the most important icons of bathroom design to this day. One example is the AXOR Starck collection, which introduced a new way of controlling the flow of water with its archetypal joystick handle. The AXOR Citterio collection is a masterpiece of 1930s neoclassicism. The characteristic features of the taps are their angles, edges and distinctive flat surfaces, which reflect light perfectly. The AXOR Massaud collection sets new standards for a pristine water experience, where it flows like a natural waterfall from the sculptural tap that also doubles as a shelf.
This is clearly reflected in the resource-efficient AXOR Starck Organic collection. Its new spray mode offers an innovative solution for the responsible use of water while generously enveloping the skin. The pinnacle of the AXOR taps, AXOR Starck V, shines with a movable and detachable spout made of organic crystal glass or porcelain. A choice of elegant glass cut varieties makes it easy to exchange a spout if needed. The AXOR ShowerHeaven 1200 and AXOR 350 overhead showers offer sprays that are incredibly gentle on the skin, completing the luxurious shower experience.
AXOR has launched complementary products for the AXOR One collection for the washbasin, bathtub and shower. The AXOR One range brings exquisite elegance to any bathroom. Designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, a familiar archetype has been reinterpreted for greater clarity, enhanced function and superior control. Powered by advanced Select technology, the faucet offers a new mode of interaction – press down on its all-in-one controller to start or stop the water, and turn clockwise to increase the temperature. The action is effortless, intuitive and ultra-precise, and this same inventive design thinking characterises the entire collection. The range is available in chrome, matt black, and an array of exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surfaces
