Ergonomic paint brush developed in collaboration with professionals
Shift Paint brush

The paint brush Shift is the result of my BFA final thesis. It is based out of ergonomics and developed in collaboration with professionals and Färggrossen i Nybro AB. The angulation of the shaft is the caracter and function of the brush. With different grip it allows the user to flexibly vary how the Shift meets surfaces.

I made three series of mock-ups. The picture shows an excerpt from the second series.
I let proffesional painters evaluate the grip and comfort. I found two different grips that were used most frequent by the painters. In order to improve the ergonomics, I choose to create a dynamic grip which allows the user to change his or her position during work. This would reduce the static movements in painting.
