For those of us looking for the silver lining in a year characterised by the new and now well-overused term “unprecedented times”, we need look no further than the Axia collection from Phoenix Tapware. Released in February the minimalist range of hardware for our design-led kitchens and bathrooms received immediate acclaim from Design Hunters, and before long the sentiment was echoed amidst peers in the industry who were quick to recognise the collection with a Red Dot award and Red Dot Best of the Best award.
The Axia collection is a contemporary embodiment of minimalist design with crisp detailing and – despite its visual simplicity – a memorable presence. Combining form and function, the statement tapware range is highly functional with fine precision etched grooves for easy operation and control.
More recently, Phoenix Tapware has added to the Axia collection with the Axia Wall Basin/Bath Curved Outlet Hostess Set. The Axia Hostess Set is an extension of the ultra-modern, minimalist design language evident in the wider Axia collection and as such relates perfectly to any contemporary interior. Made from brass, it’s available in three finishes: chrome, brushed nickel or matte black and features 3/4 turn ceramic disc spindles and breech assembly.
Alternatively, the Vivid Slimline Plus Wall Basin/Bath Hostess Set is similarly contemporary in form, yet contrastingly linear in design. Like Axia, the Vivid Slimline range is an elegant yet understated tapware design perfectly suited to sophisticated, design-orientated environments. Iconic to the design is a subtle teardrop shape on the side of each handle, transforming into the crosshair detailing as part of the handle.
The Vivid Slimline Hostess Set features coloured hot and cold indicators, five finishes – chrome, brushed nickel, gun metal, matte black, brushed gold – and brass construction. As per the Axia Hostess Set, Vivid features 3/4 turn ceramic disc spindles and breech assembly.
Both the Axia and Vivid Slimline collections champion finding beauty in the every day, and furthermore, creating beauty for the utilitarian nature of our most functional spaces.
