Move over modular kitchens, modular homes and modular furniture. It’s time for a modular, err…shower. Displayed at North America’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair 2009, also popularly known as ICFF, was Philippe Starck’s modular shower system for Axor.
The modular shower made its official debut at the fair. It’s the most modern of bathroom fittings that have grown to become more and more glamourised over the years. Axor Starck Shower Collection is designer based, easy to fix, and has a building block system to create shower from individual parts, that can be freely combined.
Its overhead Axor Starck ShowerHeaven actually pours water from its 28 square inch fixture in a way, that you feel rain soaking you wet!
The modular shower set has its parts in squares of five by five inches each, no circles, no half cones hanging from a protruding pipe above your head. The no-frills set has thermostat, volume and diverter controls, hand shower or showerhead and even lighting, sound and shelf modules.
Its makers say it is meant to give the user, an exceptionally luxurious showering experience.
