A note from Marla about the Letter Locks: "Our locks always combine design and utility because they are meant to be used as "tools". The Letter Locks pay homage to the Bauhaus and the androgeny of that era -- a time where there was a desire for beauty in practicality and women quite literally dressed for it with men's suits becoming all the rage--think of the glorious images of Marlene Dietrich from that time. We didn't quite accept a Bauhaus typeface for our Letter Locks, opting instead to make our own with form following function as we moved through each letter and size. Every letter had to be thought through to retain its usefulness--which is something I obsess about--how you will use them. We made them in two sizes. What will you do with them?"
