The second coming of Lexi

Building on its initial collection, Phoenix Tapware has released Lexi MKII, a refined contemporary collection of taps, that improve on the original.

The second coming of Lexi

Looking to constantly evolve its products in the pursuit to perfection, Phoenix Tapware has updated their original Lexi range with Lexi MKII, a contemporary touch up to an already-iconic collection.

Celebrating the strong design language of linear architecture, Lexi MKII opts for a more elegant approach compared to its predecessor. The slender profiled outlet and pin handle is now elongated and sits vertically, offering a more streamlined and complex engineering element, thus adding a touch of class to any bathroom they are set within.


Ban Lui, Phoenix Tapware’s Design Lead, says that the new range continues the characteristics of the original Lexi collection, but is a more refined and assured product.

“An evolution of Lexi, the new Lexi MKII is in keeping with the concept of linear minimalism. The collection’s lines are based on a composition of two simple geometric structures – the cylindrical bodies and rectangular forms of the pin handle and spout create a harmonious design that blends comfortably in any modern setting,” he says.

“With a stronger design language, Lexi MKII’s slender outlet is achieved through a unique rectangular aerator, for basin products, or flow straightener, for bath outlets. The pin lever handle features a delicately recessed button, creating a fine line detail around the body of the handle.”

Available in three finishes, Chrome, Brushed Nickel and Matte Black, Lexi MKII is a versatile collection that can be easily placed within a range of interiors.

Phoenix’s Cold Start cartridge technology, seen within the Lexi MKII Basin and Vessel Mixers, is a cost-effective implementation that has seen both products awarded with a WELS 6-star rating for water efficiency.

Cold Start technology allows only cold water to be delivered when the tap is operated from the traditional mid-lever position.This means hot water only flows if the handle is moved to the left hot position, saving energy by avoiding the unnecessary heating of water for tasks such as cleaning your teeth or washing your hands.The flow of water is ultra- responsive and precise, giving you total control over temperature and water flow.

With its mix of round and square features, Lexi MKII is a truly versatile range, pairing beautifully with Phoenix’s other contemporary, geometric accessories and showers such as NX Quil Showers and Vivid Slimline Accessories.

There’s a range of products in the collection tailor made to be a bathroom solution in any context, including the Lexi MKII Basin Mixer, Vessel Mixer, Shower / Wall Mixer, Shower / Bath Diverter Mixer and many more.

The collection, like all of Phoenix’s products, is manufactured to a high quality. Precision and durability are no exception when it comes to Lexi MKII, with Phoenix offering a 15-year cartridge warranty, 7 years on product, parts and finish and 1 year on labour for the entire collection, highlighting the confidence of the company and the durability of Lexi MKII.

The Lexi MKII is available now through all good bathroom and tapware stores. Collection accessories are also coming soon.
