Mühle – Vivo Shaving Set - Plum Wood
Vivo Shaving Set from MÜHLE in plum wood with a pure badger brush and safety 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 – Plum wood
Designers, turners and carvers have long since discovered the wood of the plum tree. They use the material for writing utensils, furniture and musical instruments. We have included it in our collection because of its intriguing colouring and vivid grain.
Another sustainable advantage is that it is an indigenous wood which is both hard and robust. To protect the wood against water, the surfaces are sealed once again with oil. The resulting soft gleam is a deliberate and highly attractive side effect.
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 – Classic safety razor blade
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. They can be purchased from us and by retailers everywhere.
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.
