This compact booklet explains the most important design terms and introduces the designers.
What is style, and what is styling? How is organic design defined? Who are the creative minds responsible for the innovative bathroom product concepts for Hansgrohe and Axor? Answers to these and many other questions can be found in the Axor design encyclopedia, which explains more than 140 key design terms over 38 pages. This compact, clear, fully-illustrated booklet also explains important architectural terms and details the biographies of well-known designers.
For example, did you know that Philippe Starck designed his first faucet for Axor in 1994? This is now a classic design. Or, did you know what characterizes the creativity of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec? The Axor design encyclopedia will tell all.
Why make a design encyclopedia?
The current variety of styles and forms makes it difficult to maintain a clear overview of design terms. With the design encyclopedia, Axor offers a practical aid for orientation in current design and architecture discussions – and also provides information on the most important designers in the branch.
This compact booklet is a guide through the world of the creative minds, gives concise answers to design questions and raises the reader’s interest in design. It also details various different views and opinions on the topic.
