Philippe Starck's modular shower system for Axor made its North American debut at the ICFF.
The Axor Starck ShowerCollection offers a designer- and installer-friendly, building-block system for creating a shower from individual elements that can be freely combined, thus allowing complete design flexibility.
The basis of the modular collection is the perfection of the square: All elements of the collection emanate from a simple 5-inch x 5-inch module. Devoid of any curlicues or frills, this basic building block can house any of several functions: thermostat, volume and diverter controls; handshower or showerhead; even lighting, sound and shelving modules.
A shower for the modest this ain't--one of the overhead components, designed to "deliver an exceptionally luxurious showering experience," is called the Axor Starck ShowerHeaven and it dumps water on you from a 28-square-inch fixture. Now you can experience what it feels like to be a winning U.S. football coach.
