benjamin hubert of experience design agency LAYER has designed OFFSET, a shaving brush system for london-based male grooming accessories start-up follicle & limb. the collection  is composed of three parts – a badger hair shaving brush, a case which transforms into a stand for drying the brush, and a dish for the razor.

the clever functionality and contemporary form of OFFSET represents a new approach to shaving

 

 

male grooming has recently experienced a surge in popularity, however the associated accessories are still very conventional. hence, with the OFFSET series, benjamin hubert disrupts the traditional market with a sleek, contemporary product designed to bring the experience of the barber shop shave home. the strong, geometric silhouette is reduced in form compared to standard shaving accessories. on the other hand, the brush handle and case are made from machined anodized aluminium, which is tactile, easy to clean and rust-resistant. all components finally connect with a hidden magnetic system, keeping the form neat and minimal.
