Our Cook’s Tools line was one of Williams-Sonoma’s first proprietary branded products. Every aspect of their shape is purpose-driven, from the arc of the handle that allows easy pick-up, to the feel of the concave section in the hand.
Extensions to the line included bar tools and a wine opener with a patented mechanism that extracts corks effortlessly.

Our projects for Williams-Sonoma ranged from simple everyday kitchen tools to complex mechanisms like the wine puller. All required extensive knowledge of metal manufacturing and finishing techniques. Function Engineering of Palo Alto provided mechanical engineering on the wine tool.
