With the introduction of Kurvelle in August 2018, SEK Enterprises rounds out their range of luxurious upgrades that mimic the look of much pricier materials.
What is an Ogee Style Edge?
An ogee edge is a design that is used in a highly diverse range of applications from architecture and marine design to clock design and plastic surgery. It is generally defined as vertical ends with a concave arc that flows directly into a convex arc. This mathematical term for the design is a sigmoid curve, but you may be most familiar with the design from seeing it in arched doorways throughout the Old World. You can see what an ogee edge for countertop applications looks like on this handy chart from HomeDepot.com. The design most closely approximates a fluid ‘S’ shape and may include additional ornate edges around the central shape.
History of Ogee Edges
Ogee edges originated as ogee arches, where these molding profiles were reminiscent of Gothic architecture from the 1300s. However, ogee arches truly came into their own in the 1400s as more elaborate designs and geometrical patterns became the height of architectural fashion. These S-shaped curves were used to form the appearance of daggers in the early years, morphing to flame-like forms found in the flamboyant designs of the late 1500s.
How Ogee Edges Are Different
The fluid S-shape of ogee edges sets them apart from the more basic edge designs that include square, rounded and beveled due to the additional machining required to form the complex shapes. These custom edges are available in single and double ogee patterns, adding a layer of grace and intrigue to your next home improvement project.
What is Kurvelle?
Kurvelle is the innovative new ogee patent-pending countertop edge option that easily conforms to the standard thickness of countertops. Manufactured by SEK Enterprises, this ogee edge is made from moisture-resistant MDF and includes a 10-year limited warranty.
