Clerkenwell Design Week marked the beginning of the new brand campaign ‘AXOR Places’, which explores the places of memory of AXOR design partners, such as Jean-Marie Massaud, Phoenix Design or Barber & Osgerby. The campaign is visible on the AXOR homepage and will physically be visible in Shanghai (Design Shanghai) in November 2020.
The idea is as simple as it is obvious: a piece of our world is brought into the bathroom. Aerial photography by Tom Hegen compliments the campaign on a visual level. The pictures connect the very personal `Places of Memory´ of AXOR design partners with the individualization possibilities that the AXOR MyEdition faucet collection offers: maximum freedom in the choice of materiality for the mounting plate. “Inspired by the recollection of a certain encounter, of a mood, of an adventure, of a ‘place of memory’, we transport a certain material that is reminiscent of that place into the here and now. Thus a piece of the world materializes in the appearance of the individual faucet”, Anke Sohn, Head of AXOR Brand Marketing explains.
Not only the material’s origin, but also its journey of conversion is considered. “With portraits of craftsmen, we are not only focusing on our design partners and the creatives behind the brand, but also on the craft itself, the materiality, and the origin of our products”, Anke Sohn continues. A third level of the campaign revolves around the ‘Places to Be’ – hotels in which interior designers have realized their individual interpretations of space with AXOR products. One further pillar of the campaign, which one can visit and immerse oneself in completely.
In terms of a wholistic brand experience, AXOR Places is visible within the AXOR Magazine and on all Social Media channels (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn).
