AXOR, part of the Hansgrohe Group, has reinterpreted its classic collection designed by Antonio Citterio. Originally launched in 2003, the updated AXOR Citterio collection is said to be understated yet luxurious, and is characterised by a blend of right angles, flat surfaces and circular curves.
The collection comprises 70 products including mixers in multiple heights and installation types, different plate variations and three different styles of handle – pin, cross or original lever. The new 'floating' lever handle is also available in the 3D surface pattern 'rhombic cut'. The collection's offering for the shower includes two showerpipes with either a single lever or a thermostat, an overhead shower, and a range of diverter and shut-off valves.
Antonio Citterio said: "Luxury is quality. Not just the perception of quality, but true quality. Anyone can do a tube, but when you have the flat surface of AXOR Citterio, it is not an easy process, and luxury is in the quality of the execution. It's a simple shape, but you feel the quality. Those who enjoy celebrating the daily ritual of washing should do so with beautiful objects such as AXOR Citterio."
The updated collection is available in the UK from June 2021.
