Sitting down with a friend and a nice cup of tea: time to unwind. But for people with arthritis, pouring tea is not always so straightforward. The tools available to help them often have a clinical look, stressing the user’s disability and reducing their enjoyment. ‘Touch’ was developed not to look like a tool while offering all the advantages of one. An innovative design that caters to all users and makes lifting, holding and pouring considerably easier. Because the entire set is made without handles every action becomes two-handed, which helps distribute the weight, avoid spilling and relieve any discomfort.
Touch is inspired by the discomfort of people with arthritis, but made for everyone.
