Inspired by the French tradition of arts decoratifs, AXOR Edge explores the world of perfect finishing. Designed as a sculpture, every fitting is an impressive composition of right-angled prisms. Ground and polished with diamond tools from the space industry, every single body shines like a jewel with surfaces of incomparable smoothness and milled structures that are precise to the micrometer. Available in up to 15 exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surfaces. AXOR Edge takes luxury in the bathroom to the next level.
Design: Jean-Marie Massaud
“With AXOR EDGE, we wanted to create an emotion by surprising people. When quality is a must, when competence is a due, then emotion must be first. More than a faucet, each product in the collection is a jewel, a sculpture—a real, functioning piece of art that shares your intimacy for life. That’s my understanding of luxury.”
Each AXOR Edge faucet is a sculptural composition of rectangular prisms, milled and polished using state-of-the-art diamond-cutting technology. At the wash basin, the collection includes a wall-mounted faucet, a three-hole faucet and a single-lever faucet, cantilevered and asymmetrical, in four heights. With an exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surface, such as the Polished Black Chrome shown here, AXOR Edge becomes an ever more personal reflection of its owner.
Since graduating from Paris’ ENSCI-Les Ateliers in 1990, Jean-Marie Massaud has worked on projects in a vast range of scales and contexts. From a volcano-inspired football stadium in Mexico to a ‘Manned Cloud’ airship concept for ONERA to award-winning objects for everyday use, his work seeks to renew its subject through a thoughtful reconsideration of the stakes involved and an instinctive quest for elegance and lightness. In addition to AXOR Edge, Jean-Marie Massaud has designed the AXOR Massaud collection and developed an innovative addition to AXOR’s WaterDream concept.
