The nutcracker Nut Splitter is a graceful little utensil made from precision-cast steel and inspired by an archaic practice performed by farmers and foresters, who would crack nuts with both hands and with the help of a little pocket-sized punch. The designer's vision was inspired by small propeller-like maple seeds: a sign of freedom and of the bond between different cultures.

Jim Hannon-Tan

Jim Hannon-Tan’s style and viewpoint have been shaped by a diversity of inputs and ideas. Born in Spain, he grew up with Asian influences in multicultural Australia before moving to Europe to hone his skills in the design studios of Milan, Amsterdam and London over the course of 15 years. His creative base is now back in Australia, where he is inspired by the vast landscapes, East-West fusion, and the potential of design to humanise new technologies and advanced manufacturing.
