Stainless Steel


Luxurious Form with Functionality
Product designer Michio Akita created the Prima Rio series tape cutter. This product is machined from a stainless steel ingot (chunk). Since the start of this project, the tape cutter has undergone the most trial and error. Many tape cutters already exist in the world, but this is probably the first product machined from a block of stainless steel. The simple semi-circular shape, centered tape position, and left- and right-handed blades are hidden functionality that makes it easy to use for both right- and left-handed users. The blade that cuts the tape is also made in one piece.
