Set to be showcased at Milan Design Week next month, Erdem Selek’s PlusMinus screwdrivers are fit for display. The Turkish-born, Oregon-based designer rethought the traditional screwdriver from the ground up and turned it into something that isn’t only vital for a whole slew of tasks, but also pleasing to look at. The PlusMinus set includes a Phillips #2 and flat head 3/16″ screwdriver that are both made of polished stainless with a flat, wafer style “handle” that make the entire package look like a tiny ping pong paddle. Plus and Minus signs are engraved on each of the pieces in the set to indicate at a glance which type of end they have, but they’re also “positioned in a way to guide the user the direction to unscrew or screw.” Finally, a set of screwdrivers you can use without having to go through the whole “right tighty, lefty loosey” thing in your head.
