During the Belle epoque, the world was at peace; there was an atmosphere of new beginnings and people of all social classes were becoming more cultured. Improved transportation made travel throughout Europe more accessible, and one popular destination for artists, philosophers and privileged classes was Montreux, Switzerland.

Axor Montreux, from Hansgrohe, is a complete bathroom collection that recreates an authentic, traditional design without ornamentation or overstatement, allowing for a melding of style with its basic geometric elements, says Hansgrohe divisional sales manager Cindy McCain.

"To ensure the collection's authenticity, Axor Montreux fixtures are produced from many high-grade, solid brass segments and precisely fabricated components in a manner similar to the manufacturing processes of the early 20th century, rather than from one solid casting, which is more common in today's manufacturing processes," says McCain.

Authentic to the smallest detail, Axor Montreux recreates the harmony of the Belle epoque design with clear geometricshapes and pure traditional elements, such as filigree cross handles, exposed piping and ceramic components.

As the Axor Montreux collection is not excessively ornate, it makes a perfect complement to traditional settings or even more contemporary decors.

The collection includes an extensive variety of faucets, as well as shower products and accessories for the bath. Two faucets designed especially for the kitchen also allow you to extend this traditional look to the heart of your home.

Along with a passion for the past, Axor Montreux's shower products feature Hansgrohe's award-winning air-injection technology, which infuses air with water to create an unique showering experience.

Axor Montreux is available in chrome, brushed nickel or polished nickel.
