AXOR Places - Places of longing of the AXOR designers

AXOR Places

What makes a place a place of memory?

The water in the ocean moves with the tides, rising and falling, alternately undulating, continuously changing. Beyond the endless crests of waves lies land that was once undiscovered. The yearning to go there, then as now, is unending. The primordial element of water connects us all. Since time immemorial, it has inspired people to tell stories of legendary rivers and picturesque lakes, of the vast snowscapes of the Arctic and Antarctic. For AXOR, water is the element at the center of everything. Water Stories tell us about what is elemental, about water in the broadest sense and about longing. We learn of the places famous designers and architects long to recall. We accompany gifted artisans as they journey back to the source of their materials. We talk about the individualization of exclusive fittings and spend time in some of the most beautiful places in the world. In the end, it is all about the places we long for.
