The Quintessential Elegance of Water
Playing up ITS EMPHASIS On HOW FORM FOLLOWS PERFECTION, AXOR unveils An EXQUISITE COLLABORATION WITH THE RENOWNED French DESIGNER PHILIPPE STARCK
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.
