This is a Installation. It was designed by Stuart Harvey Lee, Partners & Spade, Jochen Schaepers and Prime Studio Inc. and founded by Andy Katz-Mayfield and Jeff Raider and manufactured by Zhongshan Yili Metal Metal Products Co., Zhuhai Technique Plastic Container Factory Co., Ltd. and FeinTechnik GmbH Eisfeld and made for Harry's.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Prime Studio Inc. as part of Beautiful Users.

It is dated 2013. Its medium is paperboard, somos resin, sbs card, e-flute corrugated cardboard, eva, polystyrene.

Harry’s distributes its products primarily through direct sales on its website. The packaging is the user’s first point of contact with the physical product. Made from engineered paper and minimal plastic components, the boxes are a welcome alternative to the blister packs typically found in drugstores. A complete set, which includes a handle, three blades, and Harry’s signature shaving cream, costs $15 to $25.
