Shower and mixer design from the 1990s.

Trailblazers and trendsetters in the bathroom.

Collaboration with AXOR has generated milestones in bathroom design. Durable mixers that are unbeatable in terms of technology and aesthetics. For AXOR, the Arco mixer from the early nineties. This signalled the start of mixers and accessories in unique design. Completely different from the typical shape of taps in those days. This long-standing partnership resulted in the latest classic bathroom collection AXOR Montreux.
