AXOR One by Barber Osgerby: The Essence of Simplicity
New Collection from AXOR for Washbasin, Bathtub and Shower
Following the introduction of the interactive control element for the shower (2015) and the corresponding hand-held shower (2017), AXOR now presents complementary products for the AXOR One collection for washbasin, bathtub and shower at the Hansgrohe Group Aqua Days.
Designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, a familiar archetype has been reinterpreted for greater clarity, enhanced function and superior control. Powered by advanced Select technology, the faucet establishes a new 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, and this same inventive design thinking characterizes the entire collection. Timeless by design, and available in Chrome, Matt Black and an array of exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surfaces, AXOR One brings exquisite elegance to any bathroom.
Design: Slender Silhouettes, Flat Surfaces and Soft Corners
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 corners and balanced proportions. The iconic faucets feature a gentle taper to their curved spouts, a subtle detail that signals exceptional quality of design and manufacturing. Utilizing Select technology, the mechanical faucet handles enable precise, water-saving on/off and temperate control.
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 overhead showers and hand-held showers feature monolithic forms and an innovative organization 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.
“How do you challenge the archetype? Through the pursuit of art and science, invention and interaction. 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 realized by the incredible engineering of AXOR,” Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby explain.
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. 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 showerpipe and shower set that offer a clean appearance thanks to their integrated wall outlet.
The AXOR Universal Circular Accessories program is the perfect complement to the AXOR One collection. Designed in collaboration with Barber Osgerby, the program reflects AXOR's passion for highly functional, expertly crafted design objects in the bathroom. The accessories program includes a wall mirror, shaving mirror, towel hooks, single and double hooks, a towel holder and a cosmetic tissue box.
For the shower, the program offers a shelf and a bath towel holder in various lengths. For the toilet area a paper roll holder, a toilet brush holder and a trash can are available. The entire collection can be individualized in Matt Black or an exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surface.
