Bathroom design of the future.

AXOR is rethinking the bathroom.

AXOR WaterDream by Nendo.

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

New concepts are created through scope for creative development. By breaking away from old patterns. AXOR fosters interdisciplinary dialog. 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. Just like the concept cars seen in 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. This started in 1994, with the first all in one bathroom and living space. The salon d’eau. The first revolution. Created in collaboration with Philippe Starck.

Creative faucet concepts – AXOR WaterDream 2016.

Future research in the bathroom. With new materials.

Freedom in terms of design. And materials. The bold motto of the AXOR WaterDream 2016 was: Create your own spout. The foundation for developing new spout shapes: the AXOR U-Base. A universal faucet base. Laying the foundations for new ideas.

Five top-class designers from different cultures experimented. With new materials and technologies. They created their own personal faucet. The results were futuristic. Full of emotion. Visions for new bathroom concepts. A formative part of modern interior design.

The shower of the future. Luxury of tomorrow.

A major campaign focusing on the shower. With the AXOR WaterDream 2013, AXOR once again emphasized its pioneering role. And offered the designers from Front and Nendo a 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-standing 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.

The 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.
