Lightsaber Handles Inspired by Six Iconic Creatives

In a project called “Design X Saber,” Y Studios—a San Francisco-based research company—has envisioned what lightsaber handles might look like had they been designed by six iconic creatives. The proposed sabers were inspired by the exoskeletal aesthetic of architect Zaha Hadid, mid-century modernism of Charles and Ray Eames’ furniture designs, clean lines of industrial designer Dieter Rams’ works and more. Take a look at the design and build process behind each of the new handles at Design Boom.
