The product is a scissor developed to help children, left-handed people and someone with movement restrictions or hand deficiency to cut more easily. Faber-Castell’s new scissor ensures more simple and natural movements, that do not demand specific motor skills or fine abilities to use it, making a daily activity more fun and comfortable. Furthermore, the piece offers different ways to handle it and can be locked through a required patented system, bringing more safety to children and other users. The product combines aesthetics with usability through the power of human centered design, turning it different from existing options.

THE SOLUTION

The creation of an intuitive scissor was possible due to the product’s design. Through an arc-shaped handle – whose geometry resembles a nipper – it is possible to cut a paper sheet more precisely and intuitively. Different from other models, Faber-Castell’s scissor allows users to use the product in several different ways – even without thumbs – ensuring more comfort and practicallity.Furthermore, the scissor can be locked to be stored, without the need of an extra component, bringing more safety to children and other users.
