The bathroom luxury brand Axor launched during Milan Design Week, 11 -17 April, a new collection of faucets, Waterdream, as a result of collaborating with the architects and designers David Adjaye, GamFratesi, Jean-Marie Massaud and Werner Aisslinger.

The brand prompted the designers to envision the “meaning of water within the living spaces of tomorrow” experimenting with innovative materials, techniques and forms.

“They said ‘you can rethink what a tap can be’, which was music to our ears as designers,” said Sofia Lagerkvist, co-founder of Stockholm-based Front.

Front’s design for Axor is named Water Steps, a series of  bowls that create a small Zen inspired waterfall as the water tumbles through the bowls creating a relaxing sound.

Also GamFratesi, a Danish-Italian studio, took inspiration from Zen and created a wooden fountain with a minimal design.

Other designers that were involved in the Waterdream project include David Adjaye who created a bronze channel partially covered with granite naming it Ritual, Jean-Marie Massaud with a sculptural marble tap, Mimicry, and Werner Aisslinger who designed a clay basin with a shelf, The Sea and the Shore.
