FIRETOOLS – a simple and straight-line fire tool-set in matt black with oak wood, intended to express matter, energy and strength
A simple and straight-line fire tool-set in matt black with oak wood, intended to express matter, energy and strength. Wood & Fire Tools is a set created by the Co Laboratory, as a result of a study of man’s historical relationship with fire, earth, and tools used for fire. Our history with fire is an important one, deeply rooted in our being. The fire itself is an instrument that provides a means of warmth and food; we are attracted instinctively by his presence.
The design was inspired by the study of past instruments and the way these tools have evolved over time. Their form was born by examining this development and by reducing instruments to the most important components necessary for modern life – maintenance, cleaning, storage and fire. Each tool has been made to address each of these needs in a unique way.
The set consists of a selection of materials enriched with the use and passing of time – oak and steel.
