Each switch plate is a unique product, an object crafted ad hoc and handcrafted. In technical terminology, it is called “a unibody”: each plate is produced from a sheet of aluminum, brass, copper, stainless steel 316L or DuPont™ Corian®, hollowed out in single mechanical operation by a CNC milling machine. This is not a mold, but a skilled craftsmanship carried out with sartorial meticulousness.
