Axor One faucet collection by Barber Osgerby for Axor

Dezeen Showroom: slender silhouettes and curved spouts define the Axor One collection of technology-driven bathroom faucets that Barber Osgerby has created for German brand Axor.

Barber Osgerby has designed 31 products for Axor One that range from slender wall-mounted taps to floor-standing faucets for bathtubs and large shower heads.

Each product is available with different handles and controls, some of which are technology-reliant to ensure "ultra-precise" temperature control and water-saving, according to Axor.

"How do you challenge the archetype?" asked Barber Osgerby. "Through the pursuit of art and science, invention and interaction."

"Axor One provokes the memory of water but heralds a new way of controlling it that is much more precise and incredibly refined," the duo said. "The Axor One products are unique, made possible through our design thinking, and realised by the incredible engineering of Axor."

The technology-driven handles for the washbasin taps include a lever with a power button to stop and start the water flow, which is also swivelled to increase temperature.

A three-hole washbasin faucet is also available. One of its handles is a power button to control water flow, while the second turns to change temperatures.

For the shower and bathtub products, the controls are combined in a single panel called a "thermostatic module", which has large buttons to control water temperature and output.

All of the designs are made with a chrome or matte black finish as standard. Other metallic finishes from Axor's exclusive FinishPlus surface range are available upon request.
