Introduction: Beautifully Useful Kitchen Handles

Current door handles do not take on any personal influence from their users, and very little form the space they actually occupy, and remain physically static over time.

Our handles respond to the individual’s frequency and intensity of use, resulting in a truly unique product each time it is used. The 1000th use will look and feel different to its first use, due to its considered use of materials to affect ephemerality, dynamic form and context-driven interactions.

Step 1: Cutting the Spoon

Use the pruning loppers to make a through perpendicular cut across the handle of the wooden spoon.

Step 2: Attach Spoon to Wood Panel

Hammer a nail through the entire of the wooden panel centred all the way through, then gently hammer the scoop end of the spoon onto the nail through the panel.

Step 3: Shaping the Cake Server

Bend the cake server 180 degrees pivoting at the narrowest point on the handle.

Step 4: Attaching the Panel

Slide the wood panel into the gap made by the bent server and attach the circular plate behind the panel but over the server's handle. Use four nails to secure from behind, ensuring the server remains upright.

Step 5: Attaching Supports

Nail in L brackets centrally at the base of the panel's rear side to act as a standing support.
