Handle

Product Design

Hand Craft

Education  →  DMJX

The original thought for this project was  to make a tool for avoiding blood blisters and bulging fingers when doing your occasional handyman duties - a "handy handle". But in the end, it became something quite different. It became more a symbol of human-centered design getting too human. Actually so human it's not even functional - which theoretically makes it a piece of art. Now it's standing in my window in my Copenhagen apartment.

The piece was later featured in the book "The Secret of the Highly Creative Thinker" as an example of how to make creative connections.

a "Hands-on"

Process

For this project, I had the pleasure of working with the bad ass inventer and modeler Joakim Zacho Weylandt and his nothing-is-impossible way of thinking. It was a true "hands on" process all they way through from idea to crafting to shooting the final product photos.
