The Quin­tes­sen­tial Ele­gance of Wa­ter


Philippine Tatler Homes - - HOMES FOCUS -

De­sign, crafts­man­ship, and func­tion­al­ity: these are but three of the qual­i­ties that have made AXOR a leader in the field of mod­ern wa­ter fix­tures.

For over two decades, AXOR’S most so­phis­ti­cated line of wa­ter fix­tures has put an em­pha­sis on one spe­cific as­pi­ra­tion: Form Fol­lows Per­fec­tion. In do­ing so, it con­tin­u­ously re­de­fines its aes­thetic and is con­stantly in­no­vat­ing with re­gard to wa­ter de­sign and func­tion­al­ity. This con­stant drive for per­fec­tion has made an im­pact on the evo­lu­tion of the mod­ern bath­room as AXOR strives to strike a bal­ance be­tween form and func­tion that is both won­der­ful to look at and a de­light to use.

But AXOR does not work alone to achieve its goal of aes­thetic and func­tional per­fec­tion. Over the years, it has part­nered with some of the world’s fore­most de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects to cre­ate dis­tinct, even avant-garde col­lec­tions that would not be out of place in the world’s most lux­u­ri­ous bath­rooms and kitchens. Every col­lec­tion fea­tures taps that were cre­ated with con­ve­nience and en­vi­ron­men­tal ef­fi­ciency in mind as seen in bet­ter wa­ter flow con­trol and en­hanced spray modes. Paired with er­gono­met­ric de­signs and a sense of lux­ury, every AXOR col­lec­tion re­sults in an ex­quis­ite wa­ter ex­pe­ri­ence that ap­peals to all the senses.

One such de­signer whose work ad­heres closely to the AXOR brand as­pi­ra­tion is the multi-awarded French de­signer Philippe Starck. The de­signer first worked with the brand in 1994 when he helped de­velop Salon d’eau – the Wa­ter Room – which has rev­o­lu­tionised bath­room de­sign the world over. More re­cently, he has de­signed three unique col­lec­tions with a strong min­i­mal­ist aes­thetic that evokes a sense of tran­quil­lity as they trans­form any bath­room into a re­lax­ing per­sonal oa­sis.

Re­source ef­fi­ciency was def­i­nitely on the agenda when it came to de­vel­op­ing AXOR Starck, Starck Or­ganic, and Starck v col­lec­tions. AXOR Starck is char­ac­terised by a sim­ple, un­com­pro­mis­ing aes­thetic with a joy­stick han­dle on the tap matched with uniquely de­signed mix­ers to reg­u­late the wa­ter flow. A more in­dul­gent ap­proach to bathing can be seen in the AXOR Starck Or­ganic col­lec­tion which al­lows for a sen­sual wa­ter ex­pe­ri­ence with­out wast­ing such a pre­cious re­source.

But per­haps one of the crown­ing points of the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the brand and the de­signer is the highly in­no­va­tive AXOR Starck v, a de­tach­able tap made of exquisitely crafted porce­lain or or­ganic crys­tal glass. Pre­sented as a grand homage to the vi­tal­ity of wa­ter, it can be pre­sented as a sin­gle-lever basin mixer, a two-hole basin mixer, and even a sin­gle-lever mixer for smaller wash-bowls.

Built upon a rep­u­ta­tion for con­stant in­no­va­tion, beau­ti­fully cu­rated de­signs, and a con­cern for con­serv­ing wa­ter as one of the planet’s most pre­cious re­sources, it should not come as a sur­prise that AXOR is a brand that truly stands for lux­ury and moder­nity. AXOR is ex­clu­sively dis­trib­uted by Kuy­sen.
