AXA: MATE washbasins designed by Alessandro Paolelli

Two washbasins in five finishes: these are the new MATE countertop washbasins designed by Alessandro Paolelli for AXA, a ceramics company from Civita Castellana (VT). Perfect for contract use with their essential shapes, the round washbasin (Ø 40 cm) and the square one (40×40 cm) can be used alternately, in pairs or singly, in optical or monochrome colours, creating original compositions.

The design of the essential AXA MATE washbasin enhances the thin ceramic rim in both the classic glossy white glazed version and in those with a matt, silk-effect finish in delicate shades ranging from white to grey via Sahara sand. Also very trendy is matt black ceramic (pictured) which, combined with the steel structures, makes it possible to design all kinds of bathrooms in different styles and sizes. The MATE washbasins can be installed on any type of countertop or on coordinated stainless steel structures (chrome, brushed or matt black) with towel holder and metal or wooden shelf. The original Axa Madia cabinet can also serve as a support for the MATE washbasin.
