Untitled Project peeler 8.jpg

Design Brief

The handle’s shape doesn’t fit with the typical shapes of the human hand, and its texture less surface demands a strong grip. Both these factors cause pain in the user’s thumb and wrist. In addition, most current peelers are designed for right-handed users only, completely neglecting the needs of left-handed users.

 

Target Audience: Baby boomers, Gen-X, Millennials

 

How does solution is solving the problem?

  1. Its shape is suited to the typical shapes of the human hand for better ergonomics.

  2. Textured surface provides better grip without placing strain on the hand. 

  3. It's designed for left-hand as well as right-hand users.

  4. Thumb and finger support makes it easy to use on different kinds of vegetable surfaces.
