Tio kitchen tools
We set out to design TiO to use less material but perform better and keep the cost down. The beauty of it came from the simple manufacturing processes. From flat stainless steel stock to 3 dimensional form, the design exemplifies simplicity. It is made from a simple stamping and forming process. There are no extra parts or over-molded rubber.
The design takes advantage of the stamping and forming process. The handle area is stamped with slots to allow the material to expand during the forming process to create a contour shape that fit the hand perfectly. The slots provide a tactile grip that is secure and comfortable to hold as well as dissipating the heat to keep the handle cool.
