Easy Needle / Daily life

Easy Needle

iF concept design award 2010

Easy Needle is designed for easy needle threading. The thread can slip into the eye from the gap of the eye so there will be no need to thread the needle any more. Also, an oblique gap is applied to avoid hooking the cloth. On this basis, the break of this gap becomes gradually narrower from outside to inside. First reason is that the gap could be located by users much easier. On the other hand, it can prevent the thread from slipping out.
Environmental protection is also an important issue in our design. Easy needle is cast by one shot with only one material which is the same with an average needle.
