Hands of X is a project exploring radical material choices in prosthetic hands.
The Spring Summer 2018 collection of prosthetic hands features a palette of everyday materials. Each wearer browses swatches and creates a simplified jigsaw hand to specify a material combination for hybrid digital-manual fabrication. Co-designed with wearers and makers, the Hands of X service was piloted at Cubitts eyewear store in London.
On view at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, as part of Access+Ability, from through Sept. 3, 2018.
