First project in my recent work revolving around the role of the product designer and man’s correspondence to technology. I have chosen to withhold function from an archetype of functionality: hand tools. Only then, I could experience the full potential of form and see through the semantics of design language. In order to display the fake archeology, the tools are exhibited within a transparent tool box which flirts with Spurensicherung Art, objet-trouvé and its vitrines.
