Shavejack at the criterion!
Nut or pear? Or would you prefer apple? Together with wood turner Thomas Meier from the Meier wood turnery, Shavejack is working on a high-quality shaving handle made of Swiss wood. The interview in the criterionJournal
Criterion takes place for the second time in Zurich: 28.3. - 31.3.2019.
Criterion is Europe's interdisciplinary platform for changing perspectives: this is where people think ahead about how things can be done successfully differently. Criterion is also a market of makers: with over 200 stands and with forward-looking products from design, technology, crafts and food culture. From manufacturers and traders who take responsibility. Criterion is a three-day experience that awakens your curiosity about alternatives and shows you that change is possible if we tackle and implement it together. For a future with a future.
Limited number of prototypes available on 30 March
On Saturday, March 30, you can watch live as walnut and other woods are used to create Shavejack shaving handle prototypes. You can also get your hands on a limited edition and make your own wishes while the prototype is being made: The discussions with the visitors flow namely directly into the further development of the new shaving handle. A limited number of prototypes are available, exclusively for Criterion visitors!
