BROADBILL / Scissors


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Approx. 10% of the world’s population are left-handed and the number is still growing. I designed these scissors for both right-handed and left-handed people: simply turn the edge of the blade. These multifunctional scissors are also efficient in terms of production. Even if the scissors are only used by right-handed people, we can resolve the blind spot problem. When the three blades are used simultaneously, they can be used as a shredder; when the two outer blades are retracted, the remaining one can be used as a box opener.

Original creativity. Perfect universal design.
