Neutral / Compact Hand Drill

iF concept design award 2011

Neutral

iF concept design award 2011

Designed to be more approachable, “NEUTRAL” is a reassessment of the traditional power drill that gives priority to the needs of non-professional users. It reduces the interface of traditional drills, which feature an array of switches and rotary selectors, by offering an intuitive slide mechanism that automatically adjusts settings based on the desired depth of drive. Its simplified form is a result of the desire to produce an object that balances emotional appeal with helpful features, such as screw stabilization and laser guiding.
