Six years after the first collaboration with Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, AXOR is proud to announce its latest collection. AXOR One is unified by a holistic design language of slender silhouettes, flat surfaces, soft corners and balanced proportions. The iconic taps feature a gentle taper to their curved spouts, a subtle detail that signals exceptional quality of design and manufacturing.
Powered by advanced Select technology, the elegant brassware establishes a simple mode of interaction; press down on its all-in-one controller to start or stop the water, turn clockwise to increase the temperature. The action is effortless, intuitive and ultra-precise: the essence of simplicity. This is the same inventive design thinking that characterises the entire collection.
“How do you challenge the archetype? Through the pursuit of art and science, invention and interaction,” said Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. “AXOR One provokes the memory of water but heralds a new way of controlling it that is much more precise and incredibly refined. The AXOR One products are unique, made possible through our design thinking, and realised by the incredible engineering of AXOR.”
Form and function
Utilising Select technology, the mechanical tap handles enable precise, water-saving on/off and temperate control. The AXOR One thermostat uses large, clearly marked, highly responsive paddle handles to offer intuitive control of spray types for shower or bath, while a large thermostat handle provides ultra-precise control of temperature and volume.
The AXOR One overhead and hand-held showers feature monolithic forms and an innovative range of Rain and PowderRain spray types, reflected in the distinctive graphic language of the showerhead’s spray disc. The showerpipe is the perfect all-in-one combination of overhead shower, hand-held shower, wall bar and wall outlet.
Following the introduction of the interactive control element for the shower (2015) and the corresponding hand-held shower (2017), the AXOR One collection presents new complementary products for basin, bath and shower. The former design archetype has been reinterpreted for greater clarity, enhanced function and superior control.
The AXOR One collection comprises 31 products, including one-hole, two-hole and three- hole taps, wall-mounted taps, a floor-standing bath filler with hand-held shower, and the AXOR One thermostatic module for bath or shower. The wide range of shower items includes overhead showers that combine both Rain and PowderRain spray types, a hand-held shower that features PowderRain, and a shower pipe and shower set that offer a clean appearance thanks to their integrated wall outlet. The AXOR Universal Circular Accessories range is the perfect complement to the AXOR One collection.
Timeless by design, and available in Chrome, Matt Black and the trademark exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surfaces, AXOR One brings simple elegance to any bathroom.
