Oki Sato, the creative brain behind the Japanese design studio Nendo, magically fuses light and water with the new Axor LampShower. “Neither a lamp nor a shower, it is a hybrid,” says the 35-year-old Sato. The lightness of the visual design and the combination of light and water impart a heightened sensual dimension on the shower. Contributing to this effect are the wide-rimmed shower crest and the warm ambient lighting. “The natural blending of light and water in the new Axor LampShower gives the bathroom a cozier feel, and, by doing so, it contributes significantly towards decreasing the pace of our increasingly hectic lives,” explains Philippe Grohe. Axor presents the LampShower in a ceiling-mounted and a wall-mounted version. In addition to the standard chrome finish, the products can be individualized with the application of a range of special finishes through the Axor Manufaktur.
