Nimble One-Finger Package Opener by Simon Lyons

Home > Winners > #57687


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Nimble

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
One-Finger Package Opener

INSPIRATION:
The designer was entering a design competition in 2012 where the brief was to solve one of the many problems of living independently that disabled and elderly people explained in a video series the competition organisers produced. The one problem that people kept mentioning the most was that of trying to open plastic food packaging in the kitchen when living with arthritis. The designer chose to tackle this problem and the result was an early version of Nimble.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Nimble is a one-finger safety cutter used to open parcels and envelopes, cut open plastic packaging and cut wrapping paper and sticky tape when wrapping presents. It can also be used for crafts and cutting out coupons too. // Inclusively designed for disabled and non-disabled people. // Nimble's blade profile makes it safer than knives or scissors. // Orientation bumps inside sleeve help people with visual impairments determine that it's the right way on. // The sleeve form is fluted to expand to fit different finger sizes and is yellow for increased visibility. // Quick, easy and safe to use.
