Shifting Perspectives with Axia


Phoenix Tapware presents the brand new, ultra-thin Axia collection, proudly designed in Australia. A fresh take on modern minimalism, Axia is the award-winning bathroom brand’s latest premium designer range, two years in the making.

Revolutionising the bathroom experience, the unique Axia range is a modern twist on tradition with a full suite of beautifully crafted bathroom tapware set to become classic hero pieces in their own right.

Each design has been meticulously crafted with crisp detailing and a strong presence. This design aesthetic enables architecture lovers to create statement tapware that will complement a contemporary environment, while also highly functional with fine precision etched grooves for easy operation and control.

According to Phoenix’s Senior Designer, Ban Liu, the collection was incredibly complex to bring to life, but the designers were inspired to push the boundaries to create an ultra-thin outlet unlike anything on the market.

“Our challenge was how to achieve a 6.5mm high super lean outlet through a one-piece casting. This results in a strong signature of machined in detail with a precision control aesthetic.” Ban Liu, Phoenix Senior Designer.

The highlight of the collection is the Wall Basin / Bath Mixer Set with its non-traditional, non-horizontal design. Instead, the wall set features the mixer dial diagonally to the outlet, inspired by the elegant way a thin, single sheet of metal folds and bends. In perfect balance, the large dial and the long outlet create a fine, profiled piece that feels light and effortless.

Other product standouts include a lever-less handle design with a conventional mixer cartridge for the Basin and Vessel Mixers, which creates a pared back, minimal look. Combined with Axia’s signature ultra-thin spout, the Basin and Vessel Mixer designs are sophisticated and refined. And the twist dial handle on the Shower / Wall Mixer, Wall Basin / Bath Mixer Set 200mm, Twin Shower / Wall Mixer, Wall Top Assemblies (including 15mm Extended Spindles), adds a streamlined appeal. The Axia Wall Mixers incorporate the innovation of progressive cartridges and their unique handle design comprises of a rotating outer dial with a fixed central indicator face.
