Palm Peeler

“Palm Peeler” allows the user to peel several fruits or vegetables without stressing the wrist or creating friction points. By providing a comfortable non-slip grip, it encourages the user to maintain a neutral wrist position. Its innovative shape collects the peels for a cleaner kitchen and makes the disposal of peels easier.

In collaboration with Yazhen Liu and Sofia Egeris.

Assignment: Re-design a hand tool (we were given certain hand tool categories from which to chose) focusing on the grip of the tool and the ergonomic aspect of it.

Materials: Epoxy, Sculpey clay and a steel blade.

Machines used: Vaccum former.
