Tools make our lives better. They help us to measure, plan, make, maintain, repair and make our ideas a reality. They are empowering, giving us the potential to do things for ourselves. Since pre-historic man first sharpened his first stone into a cutting implement, we have relied on tools to help us in carrying out even simple tasks. Nowadays, every industry has its own set of tools. What would a painter be without a brush, or a gardener without a fork?

The Story of Tools seeks to explore our relationship with these most fundamental of objects – those that allow us to realise our potential as makers, problem solvers and doers. Many are rightfully considered as design icons, whilst others reveal the improvisational skills of their owners, tweaked and adjusted to suit specific jobs through trial-and-error.
