German Estates: Manuel Shaabi Smooth Blowfish

Product Number: 004-005-4080

Typically if I had to picture a Blowfish made in Germany, I'd summon up the image of an architectural interpretation. Truth be told, there is some of that in this Manuel Shabbi, but at the same time he's maintained plenty of organic asymmetry as well. How? By rendering the left flank in the former approach, and right flank in the latter. And it works - indeed the combination means the difference between right and left plays well into the organic asymmetry (the standard approach to the Blowfish shape), while also emphasizing the architectural aspects of the left face.
