Minimal multi-wrench set that is sleek and functional
Tools are not recognised and loved for their aesthetic quality, but are rather the prime examples of pure functionality. Utensils have to be effective and safe, these key requirements leaving no space for superfluous details. That might be the reason designers tend to avoid reshaping tools - while intrude to something that has been existing in the same form for ages and is only used as an aid to create bigger things?
Architecture-rooted design studio Schneider Sarto still recognised the potential in dealing with things like screws and wrenches, and came up with the line Wrench Aesthetics. The sleek wrench-collection proves that over-emphasising function can be aesthetically pleasing, if taken to the filed of what we call minimal design. They exchanged the typical wrench shape for a simple bar that, despite its sleek style, has a comfortable and safe grip. The width and thickness were carefully proportioned so that the bar would feel good in the hand, which is further enhanced by the smooth surface of the solid stainless steel used.
Looks put aside, these wrenches are fully functional for household fixes, even if they won’t replace heavy duty tools. A full range of sizes are available with varied hexagonal shape of the bolts, making the set applicable for a variety of uses. Their size is tastefully signalled with a corresponding laser-engraved roman number, matching the minimal aesthetic of the shape. Although upon looking at the set it takes a minute or two to recognise its purpose, there is no doubt that it will attract many fans - if you are one of them, you can help Schneider Sarto to put the prototype into production on Indiegogo.
