BC-AD

This primitive tool set by Tel Aviv-based design studio Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow was released at the 2012 Budapest design week (WeVux briefly talked about it for Anthropocene exhibition at Milan Design Week 2017). BC-AD project is an experimental exploration started in 2012 in the field of Design, and more specifically, in the realm of toolmaking. “…Stone tools have been the means of our ancestors survival for over a 2.6 million years, magnifying our bodily (teeth, fingernails, fists, etc.) capabilities of cutting/chopping, sawing and pounding…”

The white modernized handles are a contrasting design against the natural blades of stone. Computer imaging wraps each unique cut of stone to create a perfect fit handle. The set features knives and flint starters. The designers invite us to explore the usefulness of these beautiful ancient tool concepts in our everyday today.
