ARCOS - Androgen Set of Knives
The course was a real-life simulation of designing a product as a team.
The product was designed for the Arcos knives company by
Amir Rozen, Raz Silberman and Myself.
We are living in a Multi gendered century. Ever since the Feminist revolution, the limits of gender segregation have been blurred out. Today, Pink belongs to men and women alike and saying sentences such as: “Who is wearing the pants" may sound not in place anymore.
Cooking is becoming less of a gender related matter. Making food for our children or our partner can be done by anyone.
This being said, most of the equipment in the kitchen is ergonomically designed for men.
Designing an Androgen set of Knives that can be used
comfortably by men and women alike by adjusting the handle length to various hand sizes.
Method of Construction
