Mühle – Vivo Shaving Set - Ivory Resin
Vivo Shaving Set from MÜHLE in high-grade ivory resin with a pure badger brush and Gillette Mach3 razor.
THE VIVO SERIES – Development and aesthetics
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 the colours horn brown, black and ivory, or made of reddish, gleaming plum wood. Both the exclusive high-grade resin polished to a glossy finish and the natural surface of the wood are 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.
The Material – High-grade resin
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.
Without chrome the world would forfeit a lot of its lustre. In the finish used for our wet shaving accessories it 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.
The Razorhead – Gillette® Mach3®
The Gillette® Mach3® system is one of the most frequently used shaving systems in the world. Three progressively spaced blades guarantee a comfortable and close shave. The blades are available from retailers everywhere. Wet shave razors from MÜHLE are compatible with the systems Gillette® Mach3® and Mach3® Turbo.
The Brushhead – Pure badger
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. We manufacture this product mechanically according to the same high standards which we apply to all MÜHLE products.
