Aesthetic appeal, sophisticated functionality and outstanding workmanship: with Axor Citterio E Philippe Grohe and Italian architect/designer Antonio Citterio introduced a new collection of bathroom fixtures in the fall of 2014 that exude elegance, high quality and worth.
The Axor Citterio E fixtures are characterized by a balanced contrast of smooth shapes, clean lines and precious surfaces – features of elegance and high quality, respectively. Soft and slender mixer handles characterize the entire collection’s design, as in the single lever faucet with its modern and upright joystick handle, or in the 3-hole mixers with their classic cross-handles. All 37 products that make up the collection share a visually appealing and harmonious look that complements a variety of styles, from art nouveau to modern urban.
Easy volume and temperature control is an important feature of the entire collection – from washbasin to bathtub and shower mixers. In their archetypal shapes, the various handles of the thermostat modules allow the user to intuitively grasp their functions: the cross-handle controls water volume and the cylindrical thermostat handle controls the temperature. In hotel bathrooms, a two-way diverter clearly indicates which shower head is currently in use. In addition, Hansgrohe’s Select Thermostat technology, through a simple push of a button and easy-to-understand icons, allows separate control of hand, side, and overhead showers. In the bathtub, users can switch from the bath spout to the hand shower by pulling on a clearly labeled lever – even with soapy hands.
