I started with a simple yet unique form called "Ribbon", it was inspired by the parametric equation "Mobius Strip".
Here comes the brilliant "INFINITY".

"INFINITY" is the very first design of our "RIBBON SERIES", a unique form that can only be done by 3D printing.

Made of one single continuous metallic ribbon which is less than 1 mm thick.

Stainless steel 3D printing makes it extremely light & rigid.

It can be picked up easily from table or drawer, and also very handy to open the envelope.

Formed by thousands of layer during the 3D printing process, the characteristic layering texture makes you wondering is it really made by a machine?

"SWIRL" is a 3D printed scissors, inherited the same aesthetic "RIBBON" DNA.
It has a neutral contour with a ergonomic gesture.
The curved ribbon handles prop up the scissors naturally, that makes the scissors can be picked up easily from table or drawer.
The ribbon handles offering the comfortable holding gesture that makes cutting becomes more precise and effortless.
There're 2 different ways to hold the scissors, "relax" & "precision"The photo is showing the "relax" holding gesture where the curved handles are dropping downward which offer more space and comfort for fingers. It's also easier for user with bigger hands to operate.
"Precision" holding is when you operate the scissors from the opposite. Now the curved handles are grabbing upward which provide a tighter grip for the hand. It's also a recommeded for small hands to operate the scissors.
The scissors was formed by thousands layer of metal powder during the 3D printing process, the characteristic layering texture makes you wondering is it really made by a machine?
"BLOSSOM" is a corkscrew inherited the "RIBBON" identity, literally looks like a cheerful cherry blossom on its own.
The petals are formed by 4 floating ribbons that gently merge into the screw part at the bottom.

4 petals as handlebars are designed to be more effort-saving then just two, also feels more comfortable for the wrist when screw it unto cork.
