Known for the excitement, vibrant colors, lights and eras of his designs, Paris-based architect Tristan Auer created the first bathroom concept from AXOR, called the Blade Runner. The space transforms a high-rise apartment in Hong Kong by taking inspiration from the city’s typology of the many different layers built on top of it. The mix of old and new, historical and futuristic influences the organization of the various pieces, colors, and textures in a space.
AXOR Edge’s diamond-cut hierarchical pattern affects textures throughout the room
Designed as a room with a bathtub, there’s a distinct, bold ’80s aesthetic in the space. Stainless steel countertops reflect neon lighting, offset by a graphic blend of light and dark limestone. The 1980s continued to influence the interior as a diamond-cut pyramidal pattern was borrowed from the AXOR Edge faucet, designed by Jean-Marie Massoud, and stretched across the room. Materials for the designer’s objects continue to add contrast with the surroundings, including the Edge washbasin faucet and freestanding bathroom faucet, the AXOR ShowerHeaven and Edge Thermoostat, and the new AXOR Universal Rectangular Accessories designed by Philippe Starck.
The boundaries of indoors and outdoors are blurred with the bathroom concept by Sarah Ponatowski
An idyllic separate bathroom on the beachfront forms the second bathroom concept from AXOR. Designer Sarah Ponatowski of Maison Sarah Lavoine draws inspiration from the natural authenticity of southwest France, balancing indoors and outdoors, and creating a relaxing space with a summer vacation feel. It stresses the importance of people connecting with their surroundings.
Natural materials and colors contrast with the subtle touches of the AXOR Starck collection
Natural materials, such as raw pine and limestone, dissolve the concept’s boundaries between indoors and outdoors. Sunlight lines the teal tile inside as it passes through the wood-opening folding windows. The teak-framed entrance leads to a shaded balcony built with exposed pine beams, where the natural influence of the outdoor shower area is heightened by the understated elegance of the AXOR Starck Nature showerhead. There are subtle contrasts with both the choice of colors and materials. A brushed bronze AXOR FinishPlus coats the AXOR Starck set, two AXOR Starck taps installed accents over the limestone sink basin and again with a floor-standing version next to the bathtub, the AXOR Starck shower column follows the same long exposed lines. Pine beams.
Hadi Al-Tehrany created the concept of the bathroom as a covered dome from the Middle East
Influenced by the openness and security of public baths in the Middle East, Hadi Tehran designed the third concept of Axor baths as a place of regeneration with the dual view of protection and infinity. The architect, who embarks on designs with a holistic approach, created the bathroom from personal perception to ensure the space is literally drawn from a self-portrait.
The straight lines of the AXOR Citterio E faucets contrast with the zero-edged, round chamber
With the dome positioned in the center of the house, the design is based on the basic form of the dwelling – an encapsulated cocoon – without corners and edges. The organic bathtub is in the middle of the open plan, circular room, with a spacious shower area and double oval washbasin on the sides. Sitting in the shower, the bather feels as if he is relaxing under a starry sky as the soaring arched ceiling is decorated with glass mosaics that stretch stunningly across the entire room. AXOR Citterio E faucets, AXOR overhead and handheld showerheads, and AXOR Universal Softsquare accessories in matte black in a striking contrast by comparison, elegant elements crown the concept, adding the high-quality performance required for true luxury experiences, and playing the role of functional jewelry.
