This handle was developed in 2002-2003 for a new collection of kitchen tools (spatula, spoon, pizza cutter etc.). The design is still successfully used on the whole range of the tools. The handle was made out of rubber and pressed on the plastic component that was itself attached to the various components by the in-mold process.
Another difficulty was that the handle had to be manufacture from a preexisting mold that was used for another handle so there were plenty of limitations in width, length depth and angles.
What was very interesting was the fact that no CAD was used for the development of this product. Technical drawing were done by hand as well as a prototype that was sent to the mold maker to be measured and reverse engineered. Presentation was prepared by hand, analogue means and foam models.
As promised I have uploaded some pics from the whole range of kitchen tools using these handles.
I will be uploading some pictures from the design process as soon as I have compiled the necessary material.
