What is a ripple?
Generally speaking, a ripple represents the enduring consequences of an action – whether that be dipping a toe into a pool or shaking things up in the world of design. Axolotl have made ripples throughout the international design community with a stunning new perspective on the artistic potential of stainless steel.
Axolotl, established in 1995, has transformed into a leading force in Australian design. Collaborating with architects, designers, and artists, they challenge traditional materials and processes to engineer bespoke, unconventional solutions to architectural problems. Australian-made and designed, they support the local creative community across diverse mediums such as glass, concrete, terracotta and more.
‘Ripple’ by Axolotl is about more than just function; it’s about an intricate interplay of form and reflection, achieved through innovative pattern press treatments and expert polishing techniques. With this, Axolotl transforms stainless steel – an everyday material – into a mesmerising statement of architectural wonder.
According to Axolotl, Ripple represents a blank canvas of possibility. Capable of creating spa-like serenity in residential bathrooms, dazzling bar splashbacks for a trendy hospitality venue, artistic hotel lobbies, and show-stopping accents on feature walls, counters and facades, the raw flexibility of Ripple gives it a design edge that keeps us on the edge of our seats.
What’s truly avant-garde about Ripple is its defiance of convention. It comes in mirror and satin polish finishes which span a spectrum of elegant hues: silver, gold, champagne, copper, rose gold, and the deepest blues and blacks. This isn’t just stainless steel; it’s stainless art. And it’s designed for both internal and external applications, so your creative canvas knows no bounds.
But here’s where things get even more exciting: Ripple is your canvas, a blank slate ready to absorb your imagination. Axolotl have worked with homeowners and designers to integrate their own vision of Ripple into their projects, creating deeply personal works of art which will endure the test of time.
And yours could be next – Axolotl can infuse Ripple with your very own design and colour preferences which expertly tailor the work to your space. Imagination knows no boundaries with sheets of Ripple reaching up to an impressive 1500 x 3000mm, and thicknesses ranging from 0.6 to 2mm.
