One often overlooked disadvantage of homeless or impoverished people is their lack of access to basic grooming necessities… and sometimes a decent appearance is all they need to get back on their feet whether it be for an interview or general public perception. Designed with this in mind, the VITRUS multitool aims to provide individuals with all the grooming essentials in an inexpensive, accessible way.
It houses four essential grooming tools: A pair of safety scissors, a fine toothed comb, a removable safety razor and a deployable toothbrush. Its design aesthetic was specifically aimed to reduce excess material requirements while creating a simple form that was a functional as it was beautiful. Constructed from ABS plastic, VITRUS is entirely 3D printable. This process of manufacturing allows each component to be integrated into the casing without being manufactured and fitted separately.
