Designed by Designagentur form|knast of Germany, this is a handy piece of silicone material that can wrap around things like pencils, nail files, paintbrushes and Q-tips. It thickets the shafts where you're supposed to grasp them and provides a grippable surface.

The Little Everyday Helper, or the 'Kleine(alltags)Helfer,' is quick to clean, effortless to attach and remove it from various utensils and the winner of a 2012 iF Design Award. Stats for Ergonomic Implement Grips Trending: Older & Mild
