AXOR Urquiola artfully combines shapes that recall diverse eras and styles. Characterized by unconventional asymmetries, a surprising mix of flat and rounded surfaces, and expressive flourishes that include a wave on top of the mixer spouts, the collection is extravagant, sensuous and strikingly original. ,AXOR Urquiola includes wash bowls, wash basins, bathtubs and accessories. The collection is equally at home in minimalist settings, where its unique forms are the focus, and in eclectic settings, where it naturally blends with the mixed décor.
Design: Patricia Urquiola
In addition to wash bowls and wash basins, the collection also includes a freestanding bathtub. The tub and all bowls and basins are mineral-cast for outstanding robustness and durability, then gel-coated for a sensuous, gleaming, scratch-resistant finish. Though sophisticated and contemporary in function, they feature archetypal forms that exude the classic ambience of bygone days.
