Milano 2012: Make me tools

We live in the era of the new digital industry. We lost our sense of working with hand tools a long time ago. In Europe, schools for craftsmen are even disappearing. What a loss! This is why designers are very busy designing new tools for a new post-industrial era. In almost every exhibition in Milan I noticed the urge to design hand tools. It is a nostalgic but also very actual phenomenon within our political and economic movements.
