Luxury bathroom with a feminine touch by Urquiola.

A different perspective of the bathroom.

Maximum individuality. Space to communicate. For Patricia Urquiola, the bathroom is a reflection of the occupants. A blend of styles and objects. A lounge/bedroom with shared and separate areas. A result of the designer’s own personal experiences. Implemented by an architect who sees the big picture.

In 2004, AXOR engaged in a lively exchange with the designer as part of the AXOR WaterDream. This resulted in the avantgarde collection AXOR Urquiola. The essence of her creativity. Style fusion. In bathroom design.
