Flexi Hammer

Finalist

Competition: Spark:Concept
Designer: Wen Jie Chan
Design Type: Sledge Hammer
Company / Organization / School: Lasalle College of the Arts

Flexi-hammer is a dual functional hammer that is able to convert from a flexible handle into a firm handle to provide additional flexibility and convenience for the user. The inner handle of the hammer is made from either fibreglass or strips of bamboo that are stack together to make it flexible and to increase the velocity with which the user can hit the target to reduce jarring. The outer firm hollow handle is able to act in a firm state so that the hammer is able to distribute force over a wide area.
