Revolutionising the bathroom landscape with AXOR One’s timeless elegance

AXOR One articulates the familiar archetype of tapware and showers, reinvented. Inspired by misty rainforests and slender silhouettes, the AXOR One collection establishes a new standard for technology in the bathroom.

Revolutionising the bathroom landscape with AXOR One’s timeless elegance

Designed by the renowned duo Barber & Osgerby, AXOR One redefines the essence of elegance and functionality in tapware and showers. Featuring a range of faucets and fixtures, the collection presents a cohesive design language for washbasins, bathtubs, and showers. Sleek and minimalist, the range is characterised by slender silhouettes, flat surfaces, and balanced proportions.

Encompassing a comprehensive range of 19 products, AXOR One caters to various bathroom configurations and preferences. From 1-3 hole faucets to wall-mounted options, floor-standing bathtub fillers with hand-held showers, and the AXOR One thermostatic module for baths and showers, the collection offers a seamless integration of form and function. The design continuity extends to the shower range, where overhead showers and hand-held showers combine Rain and PowderRain spray types, creating a harmonious water experience.

The AXOR One thermostatic module: All functions are reduced to a central control element that intuitively controls all outlets.

Design thinking and engineering excellence

Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, the visionary designers behind AXOR One, explain the philosophy behind the collection, stating, “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 realised by the incredible engineering of AXOR.”

Each faucet in the collection features a gentle taper to its curved spout, a subtle detail that exemplifies the superior quality of design and craftsmanship. With its unique control module and advanced Select Technology, AXOR One revolutionises the bathroom experience, offering intuitive control and precise water management. Simply press down on the all-in-one controller to start or stop the water flow, and turn it clockwise to adjust the temperature with unmatched precision. This innovative control mechanism enhances functionality while maintaining a sleek and minimalist appearance.

Colours and finishes: Curated palette for personalisation

To enhance the aesthetic appeal and customization options, the AXOR One collection offers a range of captivating colours and finishes. Choose from classic Chrome for a timeless look, or embrace the contemporary allure of Matt Black and Matt White. As of May 2023, the Matt White finish adds a touch of understated elegance to any bathroom space. For those seeking exclusivity, the collection also includes AXOR FinishPlus surfaces, which exude sophistication and refinement. Also included is a palette of curated natural tones such as Aquamarine, Coral, Ice, Stone, Shell, and Sand, inspired by the interplay of light, colour, and water.

An Exquisite Showering Experience

The AXOR One overhead showers and hand-held showers, feature innovative PowderRain spray technology. Inspired by the misty rainforests, this unique jet type releases thousands of ultra-fine droplets, enveloping your body in a delicate water cocoon. The soft landing of these small droplets minimises the splash effect and creates a serene and super-silent experience. The PowderRain spray redefines the way we shower, providing a soothing and tranquil experience that revitalises both the body and mind.

AXOR One transcends the boundaries of traditional faucet design, offering a minimalistic alternative that embodies both beauty and functionality. The collection’s intuitive control, inspired by the elements of water and light, harmoniously blends natural precision with timeless design. With AXOR One, Barber & Osgerby have created a truly unique and exceptional bathroom solution, realised through innovative design thinking and impeccable engineering.
