The Untwist Design

The Design Goal was to create a simple and beautiful object that is engaging to play with.  Comfortable.  Industrial.  Contemporary.  Quality.  Soothing.  Playful.

Inspired by industrial manufacturing equipment and a contemporary aesthetic, the Untwist embraces the concept of Simplicity of Form.  A smooth wheel that rotates and glides over a threaded rod, and impacts a handle that generates a soothing knocking sound.

Every design detail is meticulously reviewed.  The clean shapes, contours, and structure of the Untwist are the simplest to manufacture and the most pleasing.  From the threading profiles, to the speed, and the surface textures.  Every element has intent and a story behind it.
