"This project is a result of my fascination for systems and the logic. Starting point is a form/function research by drawing maps of forms of ordinary objects in a systematic way. Surprising new forms arise which make me fantasize about form-function and function-form. The scissors diagram inspired me to design new forms of scissors and kitchen tools: a ring to measure a one-person quantity of spaghetti, an opener and nutcracker."
