Axor Citterio E Collection shower taps make for instinctive bathing

Newsflash! It turns out that architect Antonio Citterio gets as confounded by hotel shower taps as the rest of us.

With easy to read flow, diverter and thermostat valves, he’s hoping they’ll consign that early morning hotel scald or inadvertent ‘ice bucket challenge’ to the past.
