The new Vivo series from MÜHLE reinterprets the classic design vocabulary of its predecessors while developing it further at the same time. The slightly bulbous shape of the handle tapers down to the chrome-plated base. The opposite curve of the brush and the razor is a typical stylistic feature of classic design which at the same time facilitates a secure fit in a specially developed holder.
The handles made of high-grade resin are manufactured in black. The exclusive high-grade resin polished to a glossy finish is pleasant to the touch. In the combination of form, weight and surface quality the brushes and razors satisfy not only aesthetic, but also ergonomic requirements.
For the holders, a plastic insert is bonded to the metal. This creates a support which accommodates the brush and razor perfectly, guarantees a firm grip and protects the shiny chrome surfaces against scratching.
This 4-part shaving set is featured with handles of black resin with chromed metal accents:
- Shaving brush with pure badger
- Medium shaving brush size with 21 mm ring
- Safety razor, compatible with classic razor blades
- Soap dish made of metal, chrome-plated
- Stand made of metal, chrome-plated
High-grade resin is a high-quality synthetic material, the surface of which is processed and refined separately. The material is ideal for exclusive accessories and writing implements because it facilitates a broad spectrum of modern and classical designs in many attractive colours.
To begin with, the aesthetic basic shapes for brush and razor handles are turned out of solid rods. Then each individual work piece is polished in several passes to give the surface its special gleam. This processing method lends the models a pleasant feel and secures their beauty for many years to come.
In the finish used for our wet shaving accessories the chrome demonstrates its best qualities: The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring lustre. When contrasted with this, the colours and shapes of other premium materials are shown to their very best advantage.
Pure badger is the basic quality among the natural hair types. The material is recognizable by its relatively dark colouring. The individual hairs are somewhat thicker, but still soft and much more flexible than bristles.
This quality is highly recommended for those wishing to take a badger hair brush that provides a slightly stronger massage effect.
For generations, the safety razor has been regarded as a stylish classic which can even shave edges with precision. For many, it is the razor par excellence. Its styling is ideally suited to the design of the MÜHLE products.
Even if the open blade does demand a little respect at first: After a brief familiarisation period, and guided by a steady hand, it produces a very close shave and a lasting result. Unlike modern blade systems, the head of the safety razor does not move. The blades are replaced by unscrewing the cap.
