Hotel project featuring Axor mixers in gold

The luxury spa at the 5-star Four Seasons Hotel in Milan features an 800 square metre atmospheric spa. Behind all of this is the creative hand of famous Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola. She transformed the vault cellar of a 15th century monastery into a truly sensuous location.

For the Axor mixers, the architect opted for polished gold finishes which were manufactured exclusively at the Axor Manufaktur.

Sophisticated projects and properties, such as luxury hotels, are placing increased emphasis on tailor-made individuality. The brushed gold finish is one of fifteen special finishes from Axor, which make the bathroom look more unique. Patricia Urquiola even had the overhead shower elaborately refined in gold.

Besides the aesthetics, the finishes manufactured in Axor's in-house Manufaktur are also impressive thanks to their high functional added value: compared with conventional finishes, they are ten times as hard and therefore considerably more robust and durable. The innovative PVD technology is behind this. This makes surface finishes more resistant to cleaning agents and corrosion.

Pool in the spa

A haven for the senses

Beneath the retained brick ceiling, guests are pampered with a luxurious pool with adjoining relaxation areas, plus a fitness and beauty area. Here, guests can get a taste of the Roman bathing culture. A special charm is exuded by the natural materials and high-quality décor of this exclusive ambience.

Golden sheen

For the Axor mixers to be able to blend into the warm, exclusive ambience of the spa, at the request of the designer they were elaborately customised in the brushed gold special finish. The floor-standing Axor Urquiola mixer in gold finish on the free-standing bath tub blends in seamlessly, and accentuates the environment's high-quality appeal.

Exclusive showering

Even the showers have been kitted out with mixers and showers from Axor: elements from the Axor ShowerCollection by Philippe Starck, such as the Axor Starck ShowerHeaven in polished gold finish were ordered by the designer in the Axor Manufaktur.
