AxorNYC Preview

By danielle


While Monday is the official public opening, I managed to get a sneak peak at the new Axor NYC design studio in the Meatpacking District (29 9th Ave). The second floor space, which shares an address and many of the same designers as Swiss-manufacturer Vitra, showcases iconic fixtures from the Axor Urquiola, Axor Citterio, Axor Starck and Axor Massaud collections. Axor Brand Manager Philippe Grohe, Hansgrohe AG CEO Siegfried Gänßlen and President of Hansgrohe North America Russ Wheeler took me and some of my favorite social networking peeps on a tour of the 3,000 sq foot space. After a day of blogging, wouldn’t it be nice to slip into an Axor Urquiola tub (check out the photo below)!?!

This is definitely a showroom to keep on your radar. I hear they will be hosting lots of events in the coming months!

Axor NYC opens to the public on Monday, September 19. In addition to German engineering and design, the space will be offering Riesling from its hometown in the Black Forest to celebrate the launch!

The Axor Urquiola collection debuted at ICFF 2010 and has quickly become an industry favorite!
