Power tools often favor form over function but Salley Power Tools finds a way to blend peak performance with a sleek minimalist aesthetic. Made to present an alternative to conventional power tools, the design-focused tool collection is comprised of two devices, a cordless driver and compact jigsaw. Both tools feature the core values of Salley: unambiguous style, focused performance and constant attitude.

Aesthetically, the two Salley Power Tools immediately draw attention with minimalist geometric designs and natural features seen in the cork handles. The bodies feature highly contrasting colors that play off one another, while the handles stand out against the rounded design.

Form may be the focus of the Salley Power Tools but their function should also be noted. The cordless driver houses six screwdriver bits and the turn dial has been placed close to the finger for easy use. The jigsaw appears to be fairly basic, but its clever design puts weight over the center of the machine, which allows gravity to assist the blade while cutting.
