Paul Martus Adds a Human Touch to Machinery (UPDATE)

The oldest tool used by man is his hands, and American designer Paul Martus uses his to create humanized tools. His ‘hand wrench’ cast in bronze resembles (as the title implies) a realistic human hand. The similar ‘early tools’ hammer is comprised of two sculpted fists.

All of Paul Martus’ works create a machinery vibe with elements of earth and humanity. Even his rack made of steel and nuts looks hard, but it is designed to hold plants.
