On the outside, Belle Époque style. On the inside, state-of-the-art functionality. AXOR conducted extensive research into early 20th-century industrial design to develop AXOR Montreux. Inspired by the luxurious fixtures of Europe’s grand hotels, this sophisticated collection is as authentic in its detail, including slip-fit pipes and porcelain inlays, as it is contemporary in its manufacture. Ideal for traditional bathrooms, the collection can also provide a sophisticated contrast in modern, minimalist spaces.
Design: Phoenix Design
Traditional industrial design meets state-of-the-art technology and manufacture in AXOR Montreux. For an authentic Belle Époque look, the collection includes low-spout faucets, bridge mixers and classic cross handles with porcelain inlays. High-spout mixers, three-hole mixers and lever handles offer a modern interpretation of the style. At the wash basin, four mixers, including a wall-mounted version, are available. For the bath, AXOR Montreux mixers range from floorstanding to four-hole tile-mounted to exposed-installation two-handle wall-mounted, all with a choice of cross or lever handles.
In the shower, AXOR Montreux offers thermostatic mixers for concealed installation as well as shower pipes with exposed thermostats. Distinctive control units enable effortless operability of both overhead and hand showers, some with soothing RainAir Spray. Details such as the configuration of nozzles on the hand showerhead, together with the grooved cable and porcelain inlay on the handle, encapsulate the timeless appeal of early luxury bathroom design.
Crafted with painstaking attention to detail, classic porcelain inlays with authentic lettering pay tribute to early modern industrial design. For a discreet, personal touch, these plates can be monogrammed with initials or a logo, emblem or insignia, a service provided by AXOR Signature. The entire AXOR Montreux collection can be further personalized by one of up to 15 exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surfaces.
