Humantool Oy was founded in 1984, and is headquartered at the Gulf of Bothnia, at the beautiful waterside of Pyhäjoki River. More than 30 years of experience as developer of healthcare products and cooperation with Finnish healthcare experts have provided us with insights and knowledge on the functions of the human body and its needs. As offset to the Western lifestyle, our body requires physical activity and training - Humantool products support and activate our body’s natural motions, and maintain our mobility and spinal structure.
The human being as user of my products is my inexhaustible source of inspiration and a big challenge on the way to even better "human tools".
Designer Antti Limingoja
When I’m designing, I generally think of the user as an individual, not as consumer. This simply concept is like a whip to keep the designer on the right way. The living human being as user of my products is my inexhaustible source of inspiration and a big professional challenge on the way to even better “human tools“.
Also inspiring is the barren but beautiful northern countryside, which provides nothing superfluous. Likewise, the designer should strive for utmost simplicity. Once achieved, it is rewarded by smooth production and well functioning products; no applause – however, satisfied customers. This ScandinavianDesign is shown on Humantool products.
Innovations for homes and offices
Our continuous efforts to improve the human everyday life conditions have resulted in numerous useful innovations for home and office application – from office tools to backrests for fighter pilots. In-house production in close proximity to our customers ensures our flexibility. Finnish craftsmanship and high-quality materials ensure satisfied users. We find it significant to operate in Finland. Different from what might be expected by most people, we perceive our most northern location a calm and clear setting for our corporate activities in this increasingly busy world.
At all times, objects from all over the world could be associated with their places of origin. In my opinion, this phenomenon will enjoy an increasing comeback. The products made for our affluent society, which are container shipped to the most remote regions, can no longer please everyone’s needs. These might be the first vague signs of a warmer tomorrow and a more interesting world.
All our products are hand produced in our own factory.
The craftsmanship and professional pride of our own work created over the years enables high quality. The constant interest in finding the best and most suitable materials for each product is important to our customers. A good product is appropriate and pleasant to use, and this arises from a number of different things that we have learned in our practical work.
