AXOR MyEdition: a New Dimension in Individualization

25 years after its inception, AXOR presented its anniversary collection AXOR MyEdition – a new dimension in individualization – at Salone del Mobile 2018 in Milan. The collection breaks new ground with its clear design and fulfills the desire for uniqueness with its customizable concept. Also innovative is its spray: PowderRain – a sensual feel on the skin – in a sink faucet for the first time. The collection consists of nine products for the sink, for the bidet, and for the bathtub.

Design: Linear, Monolithic, Architectural

The clear, linear design sets the stage for personal fulfillment and individual creativity. The faucets feature two product components: body and plate. The faucets come standard in chrome/mirror glass and chrome/black glass, but if desired can also be manufactured in a combination of 15 AXOR FinishPlus PVD surfaces and exclusive AXOR Signature materials such as metal, wood, marble, and leather. With more than 225 design variations, the anniversary collection of the AXOR brand seizes on the megatrend of individualization. “Making a personal statement with individual interiors – that’s nothing short of luxury. With the AXOR MyEdition collection, we’ve set the stage for individual creativity – colors, materials, and patterns are the smallest common denominator for a tailored faucet,” says Andreas Diefenbach of Phoenix Design.
