Elder

Polished Steel / Various Dimensions / Prototypes / January 2017






Elder consists of a set of two objects dedicated to the elderly.
They are an attempt at breaking the cliches associated with old age by proposing transgenerational designs meant to provide the user with more pride and sensory joy.

The kitchen knife is entirely made out of steel and designed to be held while seating, providing the user with a stronger grip and a more comfortable angle for the wrist. 
The shoehorn, made from a sliced and hand-forged steel tube is designed to be used standing, allowing the user not to bend down. Using steel also permitted to reduce the thickness of the shoehorn to a maximum, and greatly facilitate its use.
