milan design week 2017: the PlusMinus screwdriver set by turkish product designer erdem selek reinterprets this homeware tool into polished items that intuitively and visually tune with our living spaces. the design is a fine example of a pure use of material which makes the product a precious tool that could be kept for generations. the products are set to be exhibited during the salone ‘satellite’ in milano during milan design week.

erdem selek‘s collection for the upcoming salone satellite is made with polished stainless steel and its carefully devised form fits the hand perfectly, while also allowing it to sit on a desk like a small yet perfectly crafted art piece. more importantly, plus and minus signs are engraved for them to encourage users to instinctively screw or unscrew. the set consists of phillips #2 and 3/16” flat-bladed screwdrivers.
