Architecture tools are extremely important as they have the potential to increase efficiency and maximize accuracy during the design process and its presentation. Yet, not all of these extensions are mindful of the person interacting with them. To address this gap in the market, graduate student Sean Riley launches ErgoKiwi — a curvy cutting knife. Unlike other architecture tools, this product optimizes and improves the design process while "sparing architects from the hand cramps, bruising and sore knuckles endured while making models."
The ErgoKiwi boasts a curved silhouette that provides a resting spot for the forefinger, as well as a dip for the thumb for better grip and control. The handy tool was born out of necessity when Sean Riley realized that standard architecture tools weren't accommodative for the longevity of model-making.
