The first explorations revolve around the relation between the knife and the hand, ergonomics and gestures, with the intention to create a delicate and long lasting object, treating the knife as a jewel. Willing to add the little material as possible towards maintaining the finesse of the handle resulted in the appearance of the “button”: a flat round surface to place the index finger. Laura Brichs, an architect and jeweler took care of the production. The pieces are made of brass in a semi-matte finishing.
