The lever harks back to Thonet's longstanding tradition of wood manufacturing, bending steamed wood to create furniture as far back as 1830.

The lever was developed in conjunction with Volvo for the new Volvo C70, whose interior fittings were refined by Heico Sportiv.

"The curved shape of the lever conveys lightness and reflects the design language of the floating centre console. It is crafted from the finest oak, beech or walnut wood and available as a limited edition that is hand made in an elaborate multi-stage process."
