Tensile Strength in Spring Design
In compression spring design the spring’s resistance to being compressed is its “compressive strength,” while its “tensile strength” is its resistance to breaking due to stress. In extension spring design, tensile strength would be measured by the spring materials resistance to being pulled apart.

Balancing Cost and Tensile Strength
No matter how much stress is applied to springs in your application, its tensile strength is integral to maintaining functionality as well as increasing the life expectancy of your springs. The longer your springs last, the more cost-effective they ultimately are.

The other factor involved in spring cost is weight savings. The less amount of material used in the spring, the less it will cost. By minimizing the materials used and maximizing their efficiency and tensile strength, spring designers can create the most efficient spring design.

Gray Matters is a collection of standout sculptural pieces: objects with a life of their own or enhancing the character of women like no other.

As in gray the color, Gray Matters is versatile and sophisticated, always adding subtle nuances, never imposing.

Designer Silvia Avanzi was inspired by the artistic heritage of her native country Italy, along with the hectic lifestyle of her adoptive city New York. Beginning with her long-time passion for shoes, in 2015 she decided to solve the eternal challenge of how to effortlessly make a personal statement from work to play, from day to night.

Gray Matters is made by three generations of expert shoemakers near Venice in Italy. Exuding with artisanal details, each piece carries an attitude of its own; a casual confidence of women who can own it.
