ELEMENTS :: Watermark Designs
The Elements collection is comprised of 16 handle styles, which are called Covers, and which were designed by the Watermark Designs Studio, are grouped into four material categories: Raw, Rock, Lumber and Forged. RAW was created by JM Lifestyles, USA. The cover features hand poured, sealed and reinforced concrete and is available in Chalk, Military and Poured & Screed. ROCK was created by Marmi Serafini in Italy. The cover features uniquely hand-finished natural stones and marbles and is available in Cararra, Exquisite Rose and Jungle & Volcano. LUMBER was created by WoodForm in the US. The cover features real wood grain and texture captured and sealed into concrete and is available in Charred, Ground and Smoked & Teak. FORGED, created by Anaka in the UK features handworked and lacquered liquid metal in Oil Slick and Oxblood.
Recently, Watermark Designs has begun offering additional Covers using the fine art of Guilloche. Guilloche is a decorative technique in which a very precise, intricate and repetitive pattern is mechanically engraved into an underlying material via engine turning, which uses a machine of the same name, also called a rose engine lathe. Examples of Guilloche are seen on fine timepieces and, most famously, the Faberge eggs designed in the 1880s for Russian royalty.
