I love to cook. One of my TV FoodNetwork favorites is Alton Brown. On his show Good Eats he continually waxes poetic against the purchasing of “unitaskers,” kitchen implements that serve only one purpose. To that end I have yet to buy a mango peeler or a banana-shaped banana box from Williams Sonoma, although I have been tempted.
It is no wonder that I am enamored both visually and functionally with Corel Tools, the four-pronged multi-tasker everyone man of the house should own.
According to Mashable: “The age-old screwdriver has met its match with this design concept called Coral Tools. The multicolored multi-tools look like tripods, but each leg is actually a cover that conceals a flat head screwdriver, a Phillips-head screwdriver, a nail-steadying device to hold a nail while you hammer it (instead of hammering your thumb), and a corkscrew with which to reward yourself after a job well done.”
“In addition to its quad-gadget coolness, when you’re using one of the tools, its other three legs make themselves useful by giving you much-needed leverage, offering additional torque for screwdrivers and corkscrew.”
“This is precisely what good industrial design is supposed to do: improve usability with an aesthetic flair. Coral Tools takes an ordinary screwdriver and makes it easier to use and more versatile.”
“Created by Jinyoung Studio, a Korean design shop led by Jinyoung Choi with designers Junpyo Kim, Hyungwoo Uhm, Joonhyoung Seo and Kijo Son, Coral Tools might be a welcome sight for those who’ve nursed a black-and-blue thumb back to health, or suffered from sore wrists after struggling with old-fashioned screwdrivers. We hope this idea might show up in a hardware store in the real world sometime soon.”
