What’s the story
When we developed London, we were only too aware of the ubiquity of the “cross & lever” range. So we decided to look to our interest in surfacing and sensorial feedback in the development of a subtle form whose side walls are all tapered to the same angle as the users hand operating them. This leads to a rewarding, secure and embracing experience unique in the sector
With an eye to providing a heritage reference to London’s form our design studio developed the circular tapered barrel that runs down through the centre of every handle. This easily overlooked detail is in fact one of the most significant examples of our polishers ability – being able to take a forged form and polish it by hand to an almost perfect circle whilst resisting the pressures of the polishing wheel is, to those who have ever tried to draw a perfect circle on the page, an incredible celebration of what can be achieved when you dedicate your life to an artform.
