turning sander

iF concept design award 2009

Most sanders that exist these days have a fixed handle. The uncomfortable angle between the handle and the hand can cause pain in the lower back and the entire arm. Carpenters also say that fixed-handle sanders are useless in some situations. As a solution to this, we present our unique form of sander with an adjustable grip position. By rotating the handle, the user can use this sander flexibly in different situations and for different purposes.
