This shaving set was created by designer Jacques-Elie Craig Ribeyron as the main component of his diploma project at the Ecole Cantonale dâ€™art de Lausanne, the well-known Swiss design school. The set is made from stainless steel and is coated in black PVD plastic, while moving parts are joined together with wing-nuts.
Ribeyron explains that the goal was to give these objects an industrial machine-like feel and to make them as durable as possible. He also wanted to reference to the act of shaving as it was in the 1950â€²s, and to recapture some of that feeling with this setâ€™s vintage feel. Ribeyron won the 2010 ECAL Prix dâ€™ecxellence for his design. The set includes a trimmer, razor, and brush, and takes standard blades.
