Timeless elegance, now in full colourSubmitted by Bronwyn
Expertly designed in partnership with London-based Barber Osgerby (Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby), AXOR has updated its ground-breaking AXOR One collection of mixers, showers and accessories. The inimitable AXOR One bathroom collection, which made an unforgettable splash last year, has now added a selected palette of coloured taps and fixtures, inspired by a nuanced set of naturally occurring interactions between light, colour and water; so users can now experience a new kind of luxury in vivid colour.
AXOR One’s six colour variants are made for non-public spaces, with homestyle warmth, imaginatively infused into every sleek finish and only available through the exclusive AXOR Signature service.
Upon request, almost any AXOR product can be personalised, customised and adapted to evoke subtle reflections of water in relation to the earth and the sky. The palette draws on the designers’ observation that colour often increases in vibrancy and intensity when viewed through water’s liquid lens.
The AXOR One colour range reflects the brand’s elemental connection to nature through water, with the Aquamarine variant’s blue-green invoking the chromatic character of a calm sea. Coral is a warm, red-orange, like a soft sunset over a calm lagoon. Ice is a gentle, muted blue, like the infinitely layered tones of glaciers and sea ice. Stone is a bold grey, inspired by the intersection of land and sea. Shell is a cool, greyish pink, echoing the plant life beneath the waves; and Sand is the colour of the shore, wet from the ebbing tide.
Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby explain, “Each colour balances the capacity to become part of a calm visual field with limitless scope for self-expression and individuality, reflecting the way in which bathrooms and small cloakrooms are increasingly becoming places that are less about neutral utility and more about original and impactful design. We chose the colours to complement the widest range of bathroom finishes, from enamel and concrete, to marble and wood”.
The selected fixtures from the AXOR One colour collection have a gloss finish, which reads like a layer of water over a lightly masked surface colour, adding depth and vibrancy. Just like water, this gloss finish reflects the surrounding environment, while providing surfaces that are easy to clean and maintain.
AXOR One brings the benefit of sheer, minimalist design to life, balancing a radically reduced aesthetic with exceptional functionality, now in living colour. Discover the new trend in sleek, compact bathroom design and find a whole new way of living with water – the One way.
