Mathematics Scissors by iAN Yen of Design YxR

iAN Yen, of Design YxR, has created the Mathematics Scissors. When designing the scissors, Yen thought about aesthetics instead of focusing solely on the function.

Yen ended up basing his design on the Golden Ratio principle in mathematics, a ratio that has been used in design for centuries. The first image below shows a visualization of the ratio and how it relates to the scissors.

The result is a pair of scissors whose proportions are completely functional and comfortable to use.
