Stretta / Nut-cracker

Stretta

The process of nut-cracking can be really difficult. There is some traditional methods to crack the nuts; however the most common way is squeezing. When I observe this movement I tried to combine the movement and the form itself. Therefore, punch-like form was come up. This form can be easily fit in the palm and provides the natural movement of cracking. Also, the cracker fits in the palm and works with one hand, which makes the other hand free. Moreover, wood is chosen as material, which provides not only warm and soft feelings but also healthy.
