Axor has just presented its latest collection by the design team, and brothers, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. The Bouroullecs join Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio, Jean-Marie Massaud and Patricia Urquiola as designers for the Axor line of bathroom fixtures.

The collection, simply named Axor Bouroullec, is based on imagination, interaction, individual expression and the idea that all should “feel free to compose.” Made up of faucets, washbasins, a bathtub, shower components, and accessories, Axor Bouroullec invites users to think about how they use the space and interact with water to create their own customized bathroom configurations.

Taps, faucets and shelves can be placed wherever the user desires, without being custom-ordered.

“No longer do faucets have to be placed in the center of the rear rim of the washbasin," adds Philippe Grohe. “Instead fittings can be freely arranged within the washing area: on the integrated shelves, in front of or next to the sink, or on the wall. As a result, Axor Bouroullec offers a wealth of options to create designs and solutions that meet the functional, aesthetic and individual needs of the user.”

The basins and shelving components are made of mineral resin. Axor is promoting the design possibilities with a 3D model system that is easily accessed online and enables the user to save and print their desired composition.
