AXOR edge collection is like a jewel in your bathroom

13 years since AXOR’s first collection with french designer jean-marie massaud, the brand has revealed a gem within the bathroom. named the AXOR ‘edge’, the sculptured cube collection is said to transcend boundaries in aesthetics as well as technology. the result is a completely luxurious design from its geometrical styling to its water experience.

in my collaboration with AXOR, we always seek to provide a better user experience,says jean-marie massaud.with AXOR edge, we have answered the demand for refinement and uniqueness to make a sculpture out of an everyday object. more than a faucet, each product in the collection is a jewel, a masterpiece, a unique architectural object drilled from a brass black and then dressed with personal finished. a real functional piece of art that shares your intimacy for life – that’s my understanding of luxury.

 

 

the AXOR ‘edge’ is geometric, architectural and asymmetrical in design. it is polarizing, extravagant and lavish, being deliberately designed as not a product for everyone, but rather for those who seek something different, something as intricately beautiful as a watch or piece of jewelry. with contrasting combined cubes, the three-dimensional faucet details flawless surfaces that intensely reflects the light.

 

 

the intricate surface of the ‘edge’ is created thanks to a state-of-the-art diamond manufacturing process. with a similar tipped tool as used in the space and laser industries, the machine assures accurate planes and contours. each chamfer is milled precisely at 45 degrees to create an appearance as mesmerizing as its interplay of light and shadow.

 

 

the ‘edge’ collection is composed of 25 products, ranging from washbasin to bathtub and bidet mixers to thermostat modules for the shower. each selection can be personalized with several AXOR finishplus polished surfaces from brass to black chrome. these are all coated with PVD to offer strong resistance and ensure longevity. the designs are also available without a partial texturing to create more minimalist appearances for the furnishings.
