AXOR Launches First Ceramics Collection in the GCC

AXOR x Philippe Starck: Washbasins and Bathtub for Individualists

Under its AXOR brand, luxury German sanitaryware company, Hansgrohe Group has launched its first ever ceramics collections in the GCC. 

Introducing ceramics to the region marks an important milestone for the company, which has traditionally focused on the manufacture and distribution of showers, faucets, and accessories, with these new collections positioning it as a holistic provider of bathroom interiors.  

Through elegant design and specially finished elements, AXOR Suite basins and bathtub, designed by world-renowned creator Philippe Starck, bring harmony and a personal touch to any bathroom interior. Each piece is made with SolidSurface material for resistance and longevity, while smooth contours, small radii and ‘soft’ inner basins, devoid of lines or ridges, ensure a clean modern look with universal appeal. At the same time, specially finished elements—a shelf on the bathtub, a wrap-around surface on the washbasin sides—allow users to express their individuality.

Uniquely Universal

Rectangular or circular, the AXOR Suite basins are timeless, universal, elegant forms, characterized by small radii, soft and smooth inner basins. They are encased in Matt Black, Chrome or one of the polished or brushed AXOR FinishPlus finishes, creating another luxurious option for a personal touch in the bathroom.

“The key words for the future and ecology are longevity, transmission and heritage. The new AXOR Suite washbasin combines metal and SolidSurface — a highly technological material symbolizing eternity and elegance. It is designed to last forever”, says Philippe Starck.

AXOR Suite basins take the form of versatile circular or rectangular wash bowls that can be installed on any appropriate bathroom furniture or surface. The circular bowls come in two sizes, with either a 300 mm 400 mm diameter. The rectangular bowls are available in three sizes: 285 x 285 mm, 400 x 400 mm and 600 x 400 mm.

Designed to Last Forever

Its size alone makes the bathtub the centerpiece in most bathrooms. In the elegant AXOR Suite model, Philippe Starck has not only put emphasis on a timeless, universal design, but also on durable materials. The use of SolidSurface, a durable, stain-resistant surface derived of natural materials and pure acrylic resin meet Starck’s claim: “Designed to last forever.” Non-porous and easy-to-clean, SolidSurface is ideal for environments that require the highest standards of hygiene. The bathtub, circular at the ends and straight on the sides, is generously sized at 1900 x 830 mm. With AXOR Suite, one’s favorite bath-time objects, from books to personal care items, find their place on an optional orderable shelf. With a wide range of possible surface finishes, these special-finish elements can be selected in coordination with all other AXOR products in the bathroom, ensuring a holistic design language throughout.
