Silke Giessler

Head of Axor

April 2017
Silke Giessler has been running this luxury bath-fixtures brand since 2015. At Interieur Kortrijk in October 2016, Axor launched Montreux, a new collection of taps, showers, and accessories. “The artistic and industrial style of the early-20th century still holds value today. The archetypical design of the elements was what we identified as the basis for our collection. Industrial design components, such as pipes and valves, combined with classical detailing (e.g. delicate cross handles and ceramic inlays), as well as with contemporary components (e.g. lever handles), were integrated into our design briefing for this collection. Along with our partner, Phoenix Design, we wanted to keep these features and to add perfection in craftsmanship and technology.”
