A natural ambience coincides with innovative technologies – even in the bathroom
The Alpine Chic House combines traditional alpine architectural details with exclusively modern interior design. Large areas of glass contrast with a wooden shingle facade, while high-tech design coincides with natural materials. Moreover, the bathrooms make use of contemporary spatial concepts and innovative bathroom products. Bathroom mixers from Axor Bouroullec sum up the trend towards customisation. Axor shower products also offer perfect shower comfort, showcased in an exceptional design language.
The feel-good bathroom has an exceptionally airy feel to it due to the increasing ceiling height under the roof, and the transparency is used to achieve a distinctive bathroom architecture. In the centre of the room is the wash basin, whose body also serves as a privacy screen for the bath tub. The planner took advantage of the design freedom which the innovative collection offers by using a basin mixer from Axor Bouroullec: this made it possible to arrange the handles on the left rim of the wash basin, to satisfy personal requirements. This customised solution continues with the base unit, which merges into the body of the bath tub. The floor unit and the platform both pursue the Alpine Chic House's wood theme. The floor-level shower, which is separated off by a glass sliding door, underlines the modern design and forms a pleasant contrast with the traditional wooden floorboards used in the rest of the bathroom.
The funnel-shaped shower from the Axor ShowerProducts designed by Front is equipped with water-saving AirPower technology and, with one click of the Select button it dispenses soft rain or a powerful shower spray. The designer shower gives the otherwise concealed technology an aesthetic appeal and is intuitive to operate.
