Red Bull Spanners / Spanners

Red Bull Spanners
Red Bull Spanners

The brief of this project was to create a tactile and visual tool. A set of tools, which easily recognizes the size and function. The principle is similar to currency, which have different colors and sizes for different values. This type of cognitive friendly system was inspired and adapted to 18 spanners, which today are very similar to each other. The spanners consist of two parts, metal and rubber. The rubber handles, which are a key of ergonomics in the tool, are divided in three colors red, yellow, and blue, with open size barometers, which indicates further the size visually and tactile.
