AXOR One extends its collection with “colours through water”
Brought to you by AXOR
In collaboration with British designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, AXOR is extending last year’s AXOR One bathroom collection with a selected palette of coloured faucets and fixtures that have been inspired by a specific set of naturally occurring interactions between light, colour and water.
“Edward and Jay curated these colours for us to evoke specific aspects of water in relation to the earth and the sky,” said Anke Sohn, Head of Global Brand Marketing AXOR. “The palette draws on the designers’ observation that colour often increases in vibrancy and intensity when seen through water, and it reflects the design brand’s elemental connection to nature through water.”
There are six colour selections:
• Aquamarine’s blue-green captures the chromatic character of a calm sea;
• Coral is a warm, red-orange tone;
• Ice is a light, muted blue, seen in the layered blues of glaciers and sea ice;
• Stone is a strong grey, referenced from the intersection of land and sea;
• Shell is a cool greyish pink;
• Sand is the colour of the shore, wet from the ebbing tide.
Designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby explained: “Each colour balances the ability 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 collection have a gloss finish, like a layer of water over the surface colour, adding depth and vibrancy. Just like water, this gloss finish reflects the surrounding environment whilst providing the easily cleanable surfaces required in a bathroom.
“The extension comprises six colour variants for non-public spaces, available through our AXOR Signature service. Upon request, almost any AXOR product can be further personalized, customized, and adapted via AXOR Signature services,” said Sohn.
