ORTO

MANUFACTURER
Self-production
MATERIAL
Wood

Reproduction of tools following different guidelines, each one different from the other and which recall the rural tradition, through the use of industrial production technologies. “Orto” however is a tool destined to be used for domestic purposes and for a small harvest. It is made of wood and such material highlights the ancient nature of the object in question; it can also be made of glass fibre and just like an ordinary fishing rod it is provided with the telescope-like mechanism. Its mechanical small hand-shaped component is used to strip the fruit from its stalk, thus letting the fruit fall into a small collection net.
