Chef Knife



Permanent collection Cooper Hewitt Design Museum New York

Primitive drives the attention on the many different aspects of the intrinsic and ancient relationship between Mankind and Design.
The act of planning, becoming conscious about the context and our own self as one of those qualities which built the Human Being.

Primitive brings back to contemporaneity an object created following a logic construction of thoughts, of comprehensions, a trigger towards the recognition of the most important tool of all: our hands.

The essence of using such a tool today, is to preserve vividly in our daily life the harmonic relationship between our thoughts, intentions, our embodied tools and our context. 

The construction of tools corresponds with development of prosthesis of our self both, on a physical and cognitive level acting as agents on our own evolution.
