The context
After interviewing bartenders and analyzing their techniques and equipment needed to build the twenty most commonly ordered drinks, the tools needed were pared down to the bare essentials. However, these tools come in all shapes and sizes. What if they fit together like family?
The challenge​​​​​​​
Reinterpret the classic bartender's tools as a convenient, compact set with shared form language and functional storage.
Skills Billed
Market Research
Concept Development
Design Refinement
Prototyping & Testing​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Experimentation with patterning and thickness led to the final shape and size. 
Stir spoon and bar knife join together to lend length and strength to their respective tasks.
Small enough to pop in a pocket or store without stressing.
