Ergonomic Potato Peeler Design
Published:
I was given the prompt to design a potato peeler that in some way improved upon peelers already on the market. After conducting first-hand research by testing a number of peelers on potatos, I aimed to design a peeler that could be held two ways, to give the user a choice in how to hold it. The final design allows the user to put their thumb on either the top of the peeler, or on either side. I also wanted to create a sleek and attractive form that is comfortable to hold.
