AXOR: Bathe in Luxury

Renowned German manufacturer Hansgrohe Group is no stranger to the world of luxury and premium bathroom and kitchen fittings with its AXOR and hansgrohe brands. With 116 years of history and over 500 design awards, the Hansgrohe Group has grown from strength-to-strength, creating bathroom and kitchen products that are uncompromising in quality.

The 116-year history of the company is marked by innovations such as the first hand-held shower with multiple spray types, the first pull-out kitchen tap, and the first wall bar to hold a hand-held shower. The AXOR brand offers mixers, showers and accessories for luxurious bathrooms and kitchens, with some considered classics of bathroom design to this day.

Embodying the claim “Form Follows Perfection, AXOR products are synonymous with aesthetic perfection, workmanship and ground-breaking innovations. These design collections are developed with world-renowned designers, including Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio, Nendo, Front, and Jean-Marie Massaud. AXOR products are featured in projects worldwide, from residential homes like Martin Modern and hotels such as The Warehouse Hotel in Singapore.

Creating a Calm and Peaceful Zone 

The bathroom is the perfect spot to relax and rejuvenate at the end of each day because it is associated with cleansing, bathing and recharging. As our lifestyles become more hectic and stressful, homeowners are looking into the benefits of a sensorial showering experience to soothe the tired body and mind rather than just having a mere showering experience.

Nowadays, the emerging bathroom trend sees more and more consumers in favour of transforming their simple bathroom into a spa-like sanctuary; some bathroom product experts have noted that the private sanctuary is becoming “more focused on the user’s experience”.

As sophisticated and ergonomic designs are hallmarks of today’s modern bathroom concepts, consumers are naturally inspired to create their own water sanctuary. Thanks to AXOR’s diverse range of modern and luxury bathroom, homeowners can luxuriate in comfort and customise their bathroom by selecting from the avant-garde range, or the modern range.

Minimalist-Style Bathrooms

For those who don’t have a large space to accommodate separate shower and bath areas, fret not. There are AXOR showers and mixers with ergonomic designs and practical functions to make the bathroom spaces more attractive and more comfortable.

AXOR 350 1jet

The AXOR 350 1jet captivates through its consistent purist design language. Its imposing circular design captures the bathroom space majestically. The finely milled and turned edges of the high-quality metal plate are its defining stylistic features, reflecting superb craftsmanship.

AXOR LampShower by Nendo

Oki Sato, the creative brain behind the Japanese design studio Nendo, magically fuses light and water with the AXOR LampShower. “Neither a lamp nor a shower, it is a hybrid,” says Sato. The lightness of the visual design and the combination of light and water impart a heightened sensual dimension on the shower. Contributing to this effect are the wide-rimmed shower crest and the warm ambient lighting.

AXOR One

If you are thinking of creating space in the shower, opt for AXOR One designed by renowned London designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. The shower system consists of a thermostat module and a porter unit, emphasising the philosophy of interaction. With one central control unit equipped with the user-friendly Select technology, users can have full control of the temperature and volume of water for added comfort and convenience.

AXOR Uno

AXOR Uno pursues the uncompromising design principles of the original Purist movement with consistent construction: two precisely shaped cylinders joined together at a right angle. The spouts and handles are available in radical or gently rounded versions.

The precise contours and the raised proportions in the golden ratio of the taps are their defining stylistic features, lending them a special aura and giving them a sleek and elegant look in any setting. Special surface finishes impart added radiance to the collection, which comprises over 70 products for washbasins, showers and bathtubs.

Radical and modern Purism – both stylistic directions emphasise simplicity of function. Operation of the AXOR Uno taps has been reduced to the essential: the flow of water is started or stopped by pressing the Select button, by turning the so-called “Zero” handle, or by lifting the ergonomically shaped loop handle.

AXOR Citterio E

“If you enjoy the ritual of washing every day, you should be able to enjoy using beautiful products for it.” – Antonio Citterio

Designed by the famous designer and architect Antonio Citterio, his design philosophy focuses on the ideal interplay in the shower, which is a nod to the neo-classicism of the 1930s, embodying harmony, Italian elegance, and pure luxury.

The AXOR Citterio E fixtures are characterised by a balanced contrast of smooth shapes, clean lines and precious surfaces – features of elegance and high quality, respectively. All 37 products share a visually appealing and harmonious look that complements a variety of styles, from art nouveau to modern urban.

The result of this most recent collaboration is the ‘essence of luxury’. The products are not only “characterised by flexible implementation, but also by exceptional ease of use and a pleasant touch and feel,” explains Antonio Citterio.
