Abstract [en]

Painting equipment, particularly wide filling knives, is a very traditional area that has experienced limited development since the mid-century. The same applies to the view of the product. It is made formerly for men, used formerly by men in a repetitive and highly wearing manner.

Orkla House Care, formerly Anza, is the leading professional painting tool producer in the Nordics. Their goal is to adapt their tool for a wider consumer base, focusing on amateurs.

This industrial design project aims at modernizing the view and usage of the Anza wide filling knife with focus on ergonomics, equality and inclusivity. The developed concept is thought to create extra support for the hand through raised surfaces and is shaped to also suit users with smaller hands. The design and packaging is focused on adding value to the product and creating a modern and refined impression. Simplicity, tactility and tradition are some of the themes for the design work.
