Axor unveils iconic shower ranges
AXOR, the designer brand of Hansgrohe, has launched its latest ShowerProducts in partnership with two leading young design studios: Nendo Design of Japan, and Front Design of Sweden.
“Nendo’s shower lamp indulges in artful shifts and transformations of concepts and meanings, while Front’s design draws its appeal from the reminiscence of impressionist public bathing culture, creating a totally new archetype for the shower’s handle,” says a spokesman for the leading manufacturer of bathroom mixers and showers
Despite operating within different cultural contexts, the designs developed by Nendo and Front have one thing in common – both present new icons in a charming and captivating manner. Through innovative designs, water pathways are reinterpreted in surprising and unconventional ways and long-established functional and spacial separations between the living and bathroom spheres are challenged.
Nendo draws inspiration from an emotional living space outside the bathroom, while Front explores the technical origins of the water installation. Deriving from the Axor ‘WaterDream’, a conceptual project initiated by Axor that seeks out alternative visions for the bathroom space, the new products pave the way for alternative visions of the bathroom as a living space.
Axor brand manager Phillipe Grohe says: “Our focus is not primarily on the products, but on providing additional scope for creative development, for breaking down established behaviour patterns, and for conducting an open, interdisciplinary dialogue. We focused specifically on the shower this time, using the competence Hansgrohe has gained over more than 111 years to reinterpret showering with Front and Nendo.”
