The Measuring Instrument. Elevated. Made in England. (Preorder on Kickstarter Here >)
... Is a Patek Phillipe just a watch... a Stradivarius just a violin... or a Rolls Royce just a car?... Of course Novus is not at the pinnacle of Swiss horology, a priceless violin or the height of automotive luxury but it does share the same spirit, to reimagine the ordinary and perfect everyday objects to delight its users!
We believe we need beautiful things to elevate our everyday even with the seemingly mundane and are inspired to create by the efforts of those that came before.
The Novus Rule's strikingly elegant design is not only beautiful with visual and tactile harmony between the warmth and intricate grain of the wood perfectly paired with the structural integrity and glow of solid brass but also a functional improvement on the standard rule, in terms of weight, pressure distribution, accuracy and virtual elimination of parallax error. You can customise the width, length, hardwood handle finishes and the markings (or scale) on both sides of the rule to perfectly match the way you like to work.
Individually crafted and numbered in England, it will fit seamlessly into your design process and inspire you to produce your very best!
