mano by greg bethel from usa

designer's own words:

starting with the shape of the hand, sketches and clay models focused on how a form interacts and complements the hand. abstraction led to planes with softened edges that reduces the form to the essential. balanced between elegant and utilitarian, this design functions well in a variety of environments and easily lends itself to a family of products.
