It’s not often that we have the opportunity to work with sharp products. In this special occasion, we set out to find suitable naming lines that could work well in different languages and fit the intended purpose. Together with the naming group, this was fine-tuned along the way. The word DAMAX is crafted with balance in mind; easy to recognize and understand, with a distinct sharpness. Inspired by its beautiful pattern of waves, the stem used is damas, meaning watered in Arabic, and in combination with max, as in the highest or furthest, it becomes a word with many linguistic layers, just like the stainless steel itself.
