Following its launch at ISH, the Edge brassware collection created by French architect and designer Jean-Marie Massaud has now been unveiled by Axor.
It is manufactured using the same processes for diamond milling and space construction, to create precise lines, planes, chamfers and etched decoration.
According to the company, the machinery uses high speed revolutions of 60,000 per minute and ‘hyper-controlled’ temperatures providing a variation of barely 0.1 degrees.
This is a tolerance which is 600 times finer than conventional methods of milling brass.
Axor Edge includes mixers for washbasins, baths and bidets, as well as shower thermostat modules.
Available with or without etched texturing, the brassware comes in a choice of five Axor FinishPlus colours, from Polished Brass to Polished Black Chrome.
Jean-Marie Massaud commented: “More than a mixer; each product in the collection is a jewel, a masterpiece, a unique architectural object drilled from a brass block and then dressed with personal finishes.”
It is the second time Massaud has collaborated with the company, having created the self-titled Massaud collection 13 years ago.
Based on organic architecture Axor Massaud is an antithesis to his latest cubic form brassware.
