The term ‘ALLTERRAIN’ implies the ability to function in a wide variety of conditions and situations. The design of the ALLTERRAIN line was inspired by the notion of “less” for example, sceneless, ageless and timeless. In pulling the concept together, we put all sorts of specifics like age groups, specific scenes and locations out of our minds and instead concentrated on pure, timeless craftsmanship. This was the creative focus of the ALLTERRAIN design exercise. At the very heart of the ALLTERRAIN collection is the adage ‘form follows function’, which is really an expression of the very essence of Descente’s approach to craftsmanship. In a practical sense it means putting design considerations second to those of functionality. In our design process, everything has a reason, and is related to functionality, rather than to decoration for it sown sake.
