Metro Man & Metro Home

By Bir Ganguly

If you are still wondering what to buy for dad this year, the Monaco Groom Center from Hommage, the first in a series of collections inspired by major metropolitan cities, will become available just in time for Fathers’ Day.

The three piece groom center includes: a polished chrome pedestal, a sliver-tipped badger hair brush that magnetically hangs from the underside of the pedestal arm, and a razor with a unique ergonomic handle that hugs the back of the pedestal arm using the same magnetic technology. The razor is compatible with all Gillette Mach 3 blades. The set, besides delivering superior functionality and ultimate luxury in shaving, is meant to add an artistic touch to the bathroom space. Wolfgang Joensson, chief designer for Hommage, spared no detail in its design. As he says – he was looking for a creation that would “contribute to the visual improvement of its surroundings.”

The Monte Carlo Groom Center, a limited edition, platinum version of the above, is also being released at this time. This set comes in a lacquered pear wood box that transforms into a fully functional humidor for storage of fine cigars, etc. The Monte Carlo Edition, limited to 500 pieces, will be individually numbered and signed by the designer and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
