The New Face Of Minimalist Bathroom Design

From Phoenix Tapware comes the Axia collection – an all new Australian innovation in minimalist bathroom aesthetics and function.

The ultra-thin, ultra-sleek Axia collection from Phoenix Tapware presents a fresh take on modern minimalist bathroom design. Proudly Australian designed, the range comes after two years of research and development, and the result is a considered, beautiful collection.

A modern twist on traditional minimalism, Axia is a collection that sits comfortably in any contemporary aesthetic, yet can stand as hero pieces in their own right.

The collection was incredibly complex to bring to life, with Phoenix’s design team driven by a sense of purpose, pushing the boundaries of tapware design to create an ultra-thin outlet unlike anything seen before.

“Our challenge was how to achieve a 6.5mm high super lean outlet through a one-piece casting,” says Ban Liu, Phoenix Senior Designer, “This results in a strong signature of machined in detail with a precision control aesthetic.”

The design aesthetic of the collection – crisp, clean and well defined – enables design lovers to change the feeling of their bathrooms. This is statement tapware that complements contemporary environments, while also serving as highly functional and intuitive fixtures, with fine precision etched grooves for easy operation and control.

The highlight of the minimalist bathroom collection is the Wall Basin and Bath Mixer Set. With a non-traditional and non-horizontal design, the set features the mixer dial designed diagonally to the outlet, inspired by the elegant way a thin, single sheet of metal folds and bends. In perfect balance, the large dial and the long outlet create a fine, profiled piece that feels light and effortless.

Another feature in the collection is the lever-free handle design with conventional mixer cartridge seen in the Basin and Vessel Mixers. The resulting striking, pared back, minimalist look, combined with Axia’s signature ultra-thin spout, is the perfect solution for a sophisticated and refined aesthetic.

The full range of Axia tapware products is available in Chrome, Matte Black and Brushed Nickel, including…

  • Basin Mixer
