The Extrusion Shaver has been designed in response to a market filled with over-styled, throw-away products. Our aim was to design a premium electric shaver with simplified functionality, neutral colour direction and increased material quality. A shaver designed to last for decades and suitable for all tastes. Although our process was driven by longevity and quality - by utilising mass production techniques (extruded aluminium) the shaver has been designed for low cost production.

At Blond we like to validate ergonomics and experiment with forms at every stage of the design process. Early-on; blue foam models, 3D printing and card prototypes inform the idea generation process. Later in the process they help us refine the chosen idea(s).
