In its constant pursuit of cutting-edge beauty, AXOR proudly introduces AXOR Edge: A luxurious symbiosis of geometrical bodies and an ultraprecise manufacturing method, realized through the vision of renowend French architect and designer, Jean-Marie Massaud.
The AXOR brand is familiar to those who have a taste for the finer things in life. They understand that its bathroom furnishings are more than just finishing touches — they are necessary elements for a beautiful whole.
"In my collaboration with AXOR, we always seek to provide a better user experience. With AXOR Edge, we have answered the demand for refinement and uniqueness to make a sculpture out of an everyday object," shares Massaud.
"More than a faucet, each product in the collection is a jewel, a masterpiece, a unique architectural object drilled from a brass block and then dressed with personal finishes. A real functional piece of art that shares your intimacy for life — that's my understanding of luxury."
AXOR Edge, which is available for the washbasin, bathtub, bidet, and with thermostat modules for the shower, is available with or without texturing on the surface, complementing styles and preferences.
What's more, personal refinement is made available through four polished AXOR FinishPlus surface colours, ranging from Polished Gold-Optic to Polished Black Chrome.
These are manufactured at the highest technological levels with PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition), which lends the surface power of resistance and longevity, as well as radiance and a new chromaticity for a truly luxurious bathroom.
To fully appreciate the artistry behind the AXOR Edge, a state-of-the-art diamond-cutting machine was developed for its production, which assures accurate planes and contours. It uses the same diamond-tipped tool used in the space and laser industries, which mills the chamfers at a precise 45 degrees.
Finally, diamonds are able to facet the surface of the solid brass block down to the micron. Line by line, precision-pointed pyramids are created in this way, which reflects the interplay of light and shadow, resulting in the consummation of a precious gem.
