Products with Axor ‘icon’ status include the ‘Axor Starck V’, a tap sculpted from flawless crystal glass, capturing the energy of water in a swirling vortex, adding sculpture and gentle, mesmeric drama to the bathroom experience.
The ‘Axor Massaud’ is sensuously organic, its base resembling a blade of grass. Exquisitely thin, the spout doubles as a shelf, its elegantly crafted form providing a spray that takes the form of a silky waterfall.
The ‘Axor Starck Organic’ (pictured top) evokes the sensuousness of nature while also offering ergonomic function and water-saving efficiency. The tap’s gently flowing form is inviting to both eye and hand, with abstract sculptural qualities.
Inspired by the traditional well pump, ‘Axor Starck’, meanwhile, reduces the tap to pure essence, focusing user attention on the luxury of water itself.
The ‘Axor Citterio’ is understated but unmistakably luxurious, embodying the spirit of Italian neoclassicism. With balanced proportions and elegant geometries, its hand-polished surfaces, distinctively flat and brilliantly reflective, are both calming and dazzling. Another modern bathroom icon in the making. §
