    A Personal Touch

     



    For demanding clients, customization is old hat. Personalization, however, is the buzzword of the moment for Axor, which commissioned Patricia Urquiola to design a suite of bath appointments for unpredictable characters. Axor Urquiola’s 29 components share a penchant for gentle, sensual curves. Linking past and present, Urquiola mimicked the profile of an antique washtub for a freestanding bathtub, then repeated the shape in sinks mounted on counter or wall. All three are molded from a polyester-coated mineral composite, with space-saving integrated towel holders. The lithe brass thermostatic faucet assemblies, offered in chrome or polished nickel, come in seven models for sinks, five for tubs, and two each for shower and bidet. An extensive assortment of accessories overlooks no detail, right down to the toothbrush tumbler. 800-334-0455; axor-design.com.
