wanting to transform the traditional guard shaped ‘nutcracker man’ from the erzgebirge area in saxony, german designer matthias zschaler, has created these wooden nutcrackers in the shape of robots. the original design appears very similar to the way it did 200 years ago, and the region it originated from is famous for its wood manufacturing. many of these ‘nutcrackers’ have become decoration objects, without any function. modifying the original design, matthias zschaler’s first series were handmade by one of saxony’s most renowned manufacturers, an updated version with the ability of cracking nuts will be mass produced and sold by british brand suck uk.
