Stria is an elegant folding ruler made of brass with an elegant brushed finish. It is highly engineered to be an unceasingly intuitive and cherished tool. Featuring both imperial and metric on either side, Stria is perfect for every creative.
Stria is inspired by the dovetail joint found in traditional woodworking. Its form is designed for all surfaces. Folded or open, Stria will always settle neatly as you write, measure, or cut. When extended, it lies angled to your page for ultimate ergonomic readability.
Stria consists of two arms that pivot around a dovetail hinge. The hinge is engineered to be ultra-durable. It includes a highly toleranced wedge that incorporates grub screws to adjust the friction within the hinge. This allows you to set the perfect resistance for your very own Stria. Tightening the wedge is done with the very special thumbscrew, which has an extra secret feature.
Stria is our third product in our drawing and writing collection. Stria exemplifies Makers Cabinet’s ethos: to listen and respond to our community’s wishes. That is why we have designed, at your request, a folding ruler of the highest calibre.
Stria is elegant, durable, and gratifying. Its versatile mechanism makes it perfect for sketching or drawing either at home, in the studio, or on the go. Stria builds from the ruler’s time-honoured simplicity. It seamlessly measures from edge to edge in metric and imperial. Stria has the added functionality of offering haptic feedback at essential angles. Like all Makers Cabinet creations, Stria is designed to last a lifetime.
