Wallpaper* vs Victorinox

Graphic Design, Illustration

Wallpaper* has collaborated with Victorinox - makers of the world-famous Swiss Army pocket knives - to produce three limited edition knives that feature designs by artists James Joyce, Jamie Cullen (the Brighton-based artist, as opposed to Jamie Cullum the Jazz musician) and by Wallpaper*. The knives, limited to just 100 of each design, look jolly nice so we thought we'd share some images here...

All three boxes

All three knives

This is artist Jamie Cullen's knife

And James Joyce's knife...

The knives, which launched last week during The London Design Festival, cost £70 and are available from Victorinox's Bond Street store in London. More details can be found here


I like Wallpaper's one the best

The knife- one of the "handbag essentials" unsung heroes alongside Jimmy Choo knuckle duster and LV monogrammed mace can holder. Not feeling it at all.

Love it, love it, love it. These knifes are great, designs are cool and Victorinox make quality knifes. Would love to have one.

I have always loved the work of James Joyce and what I love most about his design is the fact that he incorporated the victorinox's logo. I'm surprised it didn't have to feature on all three of the designs.

Other side of the knife Matt. I presume all 3 have it on.

cool article. I saw that Victorinox also launched fragrances for men based on swiss ingredients. We can find it on Cool stuff.

I think you'll be even more gutted when the rather large airport customs man with bad BO decides to take it off you....

Really beautiful collaboration - perhaps we can call it 'sharp-art' or 'cutting-collaborations'...

....maybe not.
