March 2015. Modular, multi-functional, and universally applicable: for the first time, AXOR has introduced a comprehensive system of accessories that consists of handles, bars, and shelf elements – the AXOR Universal Accessories. These products can be used individually or as a systems solution in bathrooms, and, to some extent, in kitchens. The collection was developed by AXOR together with architect/designer Antonio Citterio. The new products were presented for the first time in the fall of 2014.
"Out of individual, high-quality components visually appealing and harmonious accessory solutions are born. These can be re-arranged or complemented by adding more components if the need arises. This means, customizing room designs becomes much simpler", says Philippe Grohe, Vice President of Design Management at Hansgrohe SE. Small Jewels Refine the Bathroom "Accessories have a significant effect on the overall appearance of a room; they are an essential part of its décor. When I design something, I strive to create products that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. For instance, bars inside the shower function as a support for other accessories and serve as towel bars outside the shower", explains Antonio Citterio.
Timeless, elegant design combined with outstanding workmanship distinguishes the twelve AXOR Universal Accessories. Clean lines and generous surfaces indicate high worth; smooth contours and soft curves embody elegance and are pleasing to the touch. High-quality materials such as chrome-plated metal, mirrored and white glass, not only contribute to durability and hygiene, but are also easy to clean. In addition, the AXOR Universal Accessories harmonize with several AXOR fixture collections and various bathroom décors. Special customer requests are handled by the in-house AXOR Manufaktur – a manufactory that individualizes standard products. For example, AXOR Universal Accessories are available in fifteen highly scratch- and cleanser-resistant PVD-treated surface finishes, including chrome, gold optic, red gold, black chrome, nickel, brass, stainless steel optic or bronze.
