Wash basin by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Axor Hansgrohe

The two Frenchmen are among the most popular creative minds of the 21st century. Their designs oscillate between refined, organic forms and powerful optics. They are characterised by their evocation of imagination and a creative approach: "The user decides!" is the motto of the Bouroullec brothers, and by that they are referring to the freedom to combine and use their items according to the user's own personal requirements. Freedom is also the key notion in their first bathroom collection.


When it comes to style and function, everyone has their own ideas. With their bathroom collection, the brothers give a new dimension to the current trend of individualisation: Axor Bouroullec gives us a great deal of freedom to arrange fittings on and around the wash basin. However we desire. However we require. The repositories in your flexible bathroom flow together harmoniously, even on different levels, and there is plenty of room for utensils. The brothers’ understated design language is characteristic of the collection

Consumers opinions

"This great sink is very convenient, it offers a very large number of possibilities including the location of the tap. The materials are noble and the design is very neat."
"This is both a sink and a work of art. It is, like all Hansgrohe products: solid, reliable, generous and made to last, and it's like all the creations of the Bouroullec brothers, already an icon of design, pure and perfect."
"The talent is to offer something else than just a wash basin. I was not expecting that at all, this sink has personality, character. You cannot miss it in a house."
"This sink makes me think of Bauhaus architectural movement with something more, something organic, sweet. That's it! In fact this sink makes me think of a house of Robert Mallet-Stevens as the Villa Cavroix. This is an incredible object and so beautiful!"
"The size of the basin, its inclination, the two integrated support, everything is designed for a maximum comfort, this is a beautiful sink, upscale, something apart, different and very pleasant. It could even be exhibited in a museum!"
