designer’s own words:
hands are our most important and precious tools. unique but multifunctional, hands are the interface between our mental skills and the outside world. they allow us to leave our individual handprint on everything we touch and to sense the handprint of everything around us. so it`s about the input and output that happens at this unique interface: the print of your hand – or your 3d scanned hand, brought by software in the accurate position for the perfect use of a tool of your choice (handhold of a knife, pen, saw etc), cast in high quality steel, polished and chromed, is our statement on how to treat our most valuable unique tools. there`s the need for individual haptic pleasure. to make our own tools use tools perfectly.
