AXOR One’s design, created by Barber Osgerby and expertly crafted by AXOR, celebrates slender silhouettes, flat surfaces and soft curves
In 2015, AXOR introduced an interactive control element for the shower and, two years later, the corresponding hand-held shower. The Hansgrohe Group brand’s range has now expanded to include sleek, complementary products for its AXOR One collection for washbasin, bathtub and shower.
From the outset, the intention was that these would be nothing less than extraordinary — and the task of achieving that fell to renowned London-based design duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.
“How do you challenge the archetype? Through the pursuit of art and science, invention and interaction,” they explain. “AXOR One provokes the memory of water but heralds a new way of controlling it that is much more precise and incredibly refined.”
The sleek AXOR One collection for washbasins, bathtubs and showers is remarkable for its subtlety and its attention to detail
A collection of elegant archetypes for the wash basin, bathtub and shower, AXOR One is unified by a holistic design language of slender silhouettes, flat surfaces, soft curves and balanced proportions.
Powered by advanced Select technology, an all-in-one controller on the faucet establishes a new mode of interaction: press down to start or stop the water; turn clockwise to control the temperature. The action is effortless, intuitive and ultra-precise, and this same inventive design thinking characterises the entire collection.
The AXOR One thermostatic module 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 showerpipe is the perfect all-in-one combination of overhead shower, hand-held shower, wall bar and wall outlet
The AXOR One overhead showers and hand-held showers feature monolithic forms and an innovative organisation of Rain and PowderRain spray types, reflected in the distinctive graphic language of the showerhead’s spray disc. The AXOR One showerpipe is the perfect all-in-one combination of overhead shower, hand-held shower, wall bar and wall outlet.
All in all, the AXOR One collection comprises 31 products, including one-hole, two-hole and three-hole faucets, wall-mounted faucets, a floor-standing bathtub filler with hand-held shower, and the AXOR One thermostatic module for bath or shower.
With an expertise that extends far beyond the products themselves, AXOR inspires and enables architects, interior designers and the design-savvy public. “AXOR One products are unique, made possible through our design thinking, and realised through the incredible engineering of AXOR,” conclude Barber and Osgerby.
