Phoenix unveils new twists to its ultra-thin Axia collection

Phoenix continues to push the boundaries of kitchen design by expanding its award-winning Axia collection of ultra-thin tapware.

The Axia collection by Australian brand Phoenix revolutionises bathroom design with its ultra-thin minimalist tapware that is unlike anything on the market. Axia stands out for its modern and minimalist aesthetic, particularly its ultra-thin outlets and lever-less handle design.

Launched in 2020, Axia is a fresh take on modern minimalism, meticulously crafted with crisp detail and a strong presence. The Phoenix R&D team worked over two years to hone the collection’s streamlined design, which has been lauded by the international design community. Designed to appeal to architecture fans, Axia is the recipient of a Red Dot Best of the Best Award, Good Design Award and iF Design Award.

Now, in 2022, the team at Phoenix has further expanded the collection with the addition of two kitchen sink mixers – the Axia Hob Mixer Set Flexible Hose and Axia Hob Mixer Set Gooseneck. Both products continue Axia’s strong design aesthetic that enables architecture lovers to create a statement in the kitchen, while also enjoying the benefits of highly functional tapware.

The Axia Hob Mixer Set Flexible Hose includes the Axia Hob Sink Outlet Flexible and Axia Hob Mixer. The Axia Hob Sink Outlet Flexible is a stunning design suitable for any contemporary home, featuring a velvet touch, matte black silicone hose for style and flexibility, as well as a single function handpiece that detaches from the cradle for extended reach. The Axia Hob Mixer provides the perfect complement with its fine precision etched grooves for easy operation and control.

The Axia Hob Mixer Set Gooseneck provides a more minimalist take. It is characterised by a delicately slim curved profile and features a 360° swivel spout for enhanced functionality. It also comes with the Axia Hob Mixer.

Both new products are available in Chrome, Brushed Nickel and Matte Black finishes. Like the rest of the Axia collection, they also feature a high-quality standard mixer operation European cartridge, which comes with Phoenix’s lifetime warranty on the cartridge with 1-year labour and 7-year replacement for products or parts.

A trusted name for decades in bathroom and kitchen fittings, Phoenix was founded in Australia in 1989 and has since gained its reputation for precision, quality, and customer service. The Phoenix team designs, prototypes and refines every product inhouse.
