    Axor received the iF Gold Award for the Zero and Select models of its new AXOR Uno bathroom tap collection. An international jury of 58 experts assessed 5,575 product entries from 59 countries and awarded only 75 iF Gold Awards at the awards ceremony in Munich on 10 March for outstanding quality of design, workmanship, environmental compatibility, functionality and innovation.

    “Their purist design and ease of use makes these washbasin taps undeniably impressive. A bathroom tap system for washbasins, showers and bathtubs, where the bold and uncompromising reduction of form, combined with functionality results in a design that is both clean and timeless,” the jury stated in its evaluation of the AXOR Uno Zero and Select mixers.

    The Hansgrohe Group, which AXOR belongs to, received a total of nine awards, moving up to sixth place in the iF ranking. This makes the Hansgrohe Group, with its AXOR and hansgrohe brands, the best German company as well as the highest-ranking manufacturer in the sanitation industry within the iF design ranking, again outperforming some 2,000 listed companies, including top manufacturers and brands such as Audi, BMW and Apple. “These nine iF DESIGN awards, including the Gold Award, clearly confirm our ongoing commitment to combining the aesthetic design of a product with quality, ease of use and high customer benefit,” says Jan Heisterhagen.

    The construction design of the AXOR Uno is true to the uncompromising design principles of the original Purist movement: two precisely shaped cylinders joined together at a right angle. Spouts and handles are available in radical or gently rounded versions. The precise contours and the raised proportions in the golden ratio of the mixers are their defining stylistic features, lending them a special aura and giving them a sleek and elegant look in any setting. Special finishes impart added radiance to the collection, which comprises over 70 products for washbasins, showers and bathtubs.

    Radical and modern Purism – both styles emphasise functional simplicity. Operation of the AXOR Uno taps has been reduced to the essential: the flow of water is turned on and off by pressing the Select button, by turning the Zero handle, or with an ergonomic lever handle.
