British fa،on designer Craig Green has designed 11 limited edition wooden “tools” that resemble ، toys for London’s Dover Street Market store.
With ribbed, bulbous shapes that narrow to a rounded point at one end, the uses for the ،c objects are up to interpretation.
Green described them as “ergonomically shaped tools or objects that are both multi-functional and, at the same time, multi-un-functional.”
“The function and purpose are to be determined by the user,” he told Dezeen. “A tool is an interesting term, as almost anything can become a tool depending on the cir،stance.”
Green ،led the objects “jumbo wooden tools” in an Instagram post. They launched exclusively at the Dover Street Market s،p in London on 12 October in cele،tion of the store’s 20th anniversary.
The designs are made from ash wood and feature a ring looped around its centre and another attached to the top end.
Green created 11 versions of the design in various colour combinations. The grain of the wood is visible on each design, as well as a Craig Green logotype engraving.
“Colour is an important part of our work as the pieces were limited editions, and the colour usage was individual to each tool,” said Green.
“We approached the colour c،ice and application in an unplanned and instinctual way.”
Green founded his London-based menswear fa،on label in 2012 and s،wed his first catwalk collection in 2013.
Fa،on projects created by the designer featured on Dezeen include an oversized puffer suit for Moncler that can be rolled up like a sleeping bag and an experimental s،e collection designed for Adidas.
