Bathroom design of the future.

AXOR is rethinking the bathroom.

AXOR WaterDream by Nendo.

Input for the bathroom of the future. The AXOR WaterDreams.

The new concept is created through scope for creative development. By breaking away from old patterns. AXOR fosters interdisciplinary dialogue. Time and again. With international architects and designers. To develop the very best ideas for the bathroom of the future. The vanguard of the bathroom. Turning visions into marketable products. Like the concept car of the automotive industry.

Space, water and man – the parameters for creating the AXOR WaterDream. With no constraints related to market conditions. Thinking far beyond product design and bathrooms. Radical freedom. The AXOR WaterDreams gain recognition on a regular basis. At international events and exhibitions. Meeting points for the design community.

AXOR has been setting trends in the bathroom for more than 20 years now. This started in 1994, with the first bathroom and living space all in one. The salon d’eau. The first revolution. Created in collaboration with Philippe Starck.

Creative mixer concepts - AXOR WaterDream 2016.

Future research in the bathroom. With new materials.

Freedom in the design. And the materials. The bold motto of the AXOR WaterDream 2016 was: Create your own Spout. The basis for developing new spout shapes: the AXOR U-Base. A universal mixer base. Support structure for new ideas.

Five high-profile designers from different cultures experimented. With new materials and technologies. They created their own personal mixer. This created futuristic effects. Full of emotion. Visions for new bathroom concepts. A formative component of modern interior design.

AXOR WaterDream by Front Design.

The shower of the future. Future luxury.

A major campaign focusing on the shower. With the AXOR WaterDream 2013, AXOR once again emphasised its pioneering role. And offered the Front and Nendo designers the platform for their perspectives on the shower of the future: focusing on the path of water. Or the fusion of water and light.

This gave rise to two new archetypes in shower design. AXOR ShowerProducts designed by Front. And the AXOR LampShower designed by Nendo. Two new benchmarks. Both avantgarde in the context of bathroom design.

Three visions for the bathroom of the future.

AXOR WaterDreams have a long tradition. They offer designers the ultimate freedom. Crucial for the innovative capacity of a pioneer. In 2005, three exceptional future concepts were created. Further development work resulted in the creation of AXOR bathroom collections.

Three different design styles.

These avantgarde bathroom concepts are based on the philosophies of the three different designers. Jean-Marie Massaud, Patricia Urquiola and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. The stage for their futuristic designs for the bathroom of the future: the AXOR WaterDream.
