OUR STORY

 

From the beginning Axolotl has explored the intersection of creativity with technology and delivered professional designers the opportunity to re-imagine the possibilities of the built environment.

Metal that looks solid, but weighs as much as a cardboard box. Concrete cabinetry etched with the beauty of a Florence Broadhurst design. Multi-storey blades of terracotta that will never crack. Making the impossible come to life is in our DNA.

Which is why when we set out to develop a paint product, it had to be something that had never been done before. We were excited to open up the beauty and quality of an Axolotl architectural product direct to the non-design professional, whilst also continuing to deliver architects and designers the elevated creativity to which they were accustomed.

In developing what would be Axolotl Paint the starting point would naturally be authenticity and craftsmanship. As always, the disruption would come from the application of new technological thinking and the design originality that is imbued in all Axolotl products.

The result are paints that are the uncommon combination of technological expertise, traditional craftsmanship and environmental sensitivity.

More than this it is the unique aesthetic palette offered, along with access to innovative design expertise in product selection, that truly differentiates an Axolotl architectural paint from others.

ABOUT AXOLOTL

 

Axolotl provides design solutions for architects, designers and builders through a range of authentic metallic, concrete and terracotta coatings, and are suppliers of solid surface, timber veneers, stone and architectural glass.

The company was founded in July 1995, after many years of R&D into the area of metal manipulation for surface application realised a world first – the ability to adhere genuine metal to the surface of any substrate, rendering the surface with the appearance of solid metal, but without any of its limitations. In the 22 years since inception, Axolotl has continued to develop products and services that are true to the original DNA of the business and now offer eight core surface applications, with infinite combinations. 

In late 2016, Axolotl launched a range of architectural paints. The paints themselves deliver the crafted quality that is synonymous with Axolotl enhanced with the latest technical innovations. Combined with our understanding of materiality and colour in the built environment, the range is offered in a limited edition, curated palette of on trend colours and effects. 

The range has also been developed from the perspective of environmental respect and conservation.
