Antonio Citterio combines home décor and bathrooms, making them a place to relax. The Axor Citterio collection has a clear focus on simplistic luxury and epitomizes the richness of water.

Patricia Urquiola’s refreshingly unconventional work combines feminine style and floral references with a minimalistic approach: “I love creating fusion!” For Axor, she has launched an association-filled bathroom with an appropriately self-confident slogan: “Awakening your senses”.

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are among the most sought-after creative minds of the 21st century. Their designs move between refined, organic forms and powerful optics. They are characterized by their evocation of imagination and a creative approach. Freedom is the key notion in their first bathroom collection.
