AXOR One Colors Curated by Barber Osgerby: Colours Through Water

AXOR One bathroom collection with a selected palette of coloured faucets inspired by a specific set of naturally occurring interactions between light, colour and water

In collaboration with British designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, AXOR is extending last year’s AXOR One bathroom collection with a selected palette of coloured faucets and fixtures inspired by a specific set of naturally occurring interactions between light, colour, and water. 

“The extension comprises six colour variants for non-public spaces, available through our AXOR Signature service. Almost any AXOR product can be further personalized, customized, and adapted via AXOR Signature services upon request. Edward and Jay curated these colours for us to evoke specific aspects of water in relation to the earth and the sky. The palette draws on the designers’ observation that colour often increases vibrancy and intensity when seen through water, reflecting the design brand’s elemental connection to nature through water,” says Anke Sohn, Head of Global Brand Marketing AXOR.

Aquamarine’s blue-green captures the chromatic character of a calm sea. Coral is a warm, red-orange tone. Ice is a light, muted blue, seen in the layered blues of glaciers and sea ice. Stone is a strong grey, referenced from the intersection of land and sea. Shell is a cool greyish pink. Sand is the colour of the shore, wet from the ebbing tide.

“Each colour balances the ability to become part of a calm visual field with limitless scope for self-expression and individuality, reflecting how bathrooms and small cloakrooms are increasingly becoming places less about neutral utility and more about original and impactful design. Moreover, we chose the colours to complement the widest range of bathroom finishes, from enamel and concrete to marble and wood”, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby explain.

The selected fixtures from the collection have a gloss finish, which reads like a layer of water over the surface colour, adding depth and vibrancy. Like water, this gloss finish reflects the surrounding environment whilst providing the easily cleanable surfaces required in a bathroom.
