Water-saving and temperature-controlled bathroom products from Axor feature on Dezeen Showroom

German brand Axor has presented five collections of bathroom products on Dezeen Showroom, including water-saving accessories by Barber Osgerby and free-standing faucets by Antonio Citterio.

Axor collaborated with British design duo Barber Osgerby to create Axor One. The collection comprises 31 products made with a chrome or matte-black finish, ranging from wall-mounted taps to sizeable showerheads.

Included in the range are technology-driven faucets with a selection of handles and controls that foster "ultra-precise" water flow and allow users to select optimal temperatures.

The shower and bathtub products have controls that are integrated into a single panel called a thermostatic module, which allows users to regulate the water temperature and output.

Also designed by Barber Osgerby is the Axor Universal Circular Accessories range, which comprises 21 bathroom accessories such as mirrors, soap dispensers, towel racks, shelves and toilet roll holders.

As its name suggests, the collection is intended for universal use and was designed to suit any bathroom interior style. The products are characterised by their pared-back forms with "slim silhouettes, rounded corners and balanced proportions", according to Axor.

Axor Citterio is a collection of bathroom taps designed by Italian designer Antonio Citterio for Axor, which was originally launched in 2003.

Citterio has updated the range, which now encompasses 70 different faucets designed for bathtubs, showers and washbasins. The faucets come in an array of handle styles that are distinguished by their flat surfaces in a bid to contrast traditional tubular taps.

The faucets also come in varying heights, as well as wall-mounted versions, free-standing faucets for baths and faucets for overhead showers.

Another faucet collection from Axor is French designer Jean-Marie Massaud's range called Axor Edge. The family of faucets includes options with four different heights, cantilevered and asymmetrical versions, as well as wall-mounted mixers, single-lever mixers or three-hole mixers.

The faucets are cut, shaped and polished using a "diamond-cutting technology" and are available in 15 different finishes, including matte black and chrome.

Axor has also released a collection of minimalist overheard showers created by Stuttgart-based studio Phoenix Design, which includes 12 models. Six of the models feature rounded heads, while the remaining six come with square heads that can be mounted to walls or ceilings.

The showers have two spray settings: one that disperses a soft, wide spray and another that provides a concentrated stream. The showers come with matching temperature control modules, which are available in a shiny chrome finish, as well as matching shower arms.
