’’Tools are human-made objects for everyday life that exist out of the lack or disability to be able to fulfil a certain necessity. It’s a device to make something easier, or to just make it possible in the first place, although at first sight it would appear not to do so. The look of a tool finds it distinctive appearance most-likely in its functionality. Tools are for ever. What if we would take the aesthetics of found tools along the way. Parts of equipments that were once designed with care – although very neglect-able, I agree – for a very specific situation or place. A once required piece of equipment. Almost as if the witness of an urge. The witness of a result of a reply to an urge. Ah yes, tools are for ever and they come in very handy.’‘
