Insight.

Data combined with know-how can drive product performance to new levels.

To launch the new Winston Razor line an updated knurling pattern is introduced, connecting sophisticated algorithms with ergonomics and grip data.

A modern take on knurling.

The Winston handle features a diamond-textured grip, a nod to the knurl pattern of classic safety razors. The scale and depth of the texture vary based on grip zones identified using performance image maps. Function and aesthetics intersect with data to create a modern take on knurling.

Idea.

Use data to rapidly iterate performative design concepts, discovering distinct product features along the way.

Building on Harry’s wealth of knowledge in ergonomics, we mapped grip zones on the Winston handle, identifying areas for control, manipulation, and requirements for manufacturing, iterating concepts at a speed and precision previously unachievable.

Leveraging ergonomic, wear, and grip data to unlock texture performance.
