The Italian designer Diego Amadei has created a special structure that consists of a stiff brass core mounted on a recessed rose and connected to a flexible stem; this allows it to be used not just like a normal handle, but also as a multi-use object facilitating daily actions.

The flexible stem allows people to modify the shape, creating new uses and functions with few movements -- the only limit is the imagination of the user. Kobu’s original design and its various finishes make the handle suitable for any location. It is also comfortable and ergonomic due to its handiness and versatility.

Finally, this Diego Amadei piece would make a funny and unusual toy for kids for its endless forms and fairy look. The pieces showed for this concept represent some key examples of the capabilities of the project and the possibilities for adaptable hardware in the future.
