Garden Tools – form/function research

Garden Tools – form/function research by itay laniado from israel

designer's own words:

The project approaches garden tools from a material, aesthetic, and functional investigation perspective.
The bulk of the research focused on the development of a technique of bending and stretching wood into functional forms while maintaining the simplicity, both of the production process and of the functional approach to the tools.
In addition, I conducted a formal investigation into developing the shape of the blades – both in the design and in the bending process.
The project includes six final objects:
- spade
- shovel
- scythe
- bow saw

The objects are created from wood (oak) and stainlesss-steel blades
