Four-Holed Scissors Take the Tool to Mathematical End
MATHEMATICS scissors harbor mathematical principle seen in nautilus shells
MATHEMATICS scissors, a joint project by iAN Yen and Design YxR, blend mathematics with functional beauty for a design that is comfortable and all too distinct.
The designers applied the golden proportion to improve the design of scissors, starting with how they are held. Most scissors have two holes at the gripping end, while their design features four—one for each finger.
Yen and Design YxR applied mathematics to keep the aesthetics of the scissors alive, with a handle shaped like a circle cut down the middle. The holes are along the sides for easy grip and a more attractive overall appearance.
