Dedicated to the process, the function, the materials, and the maker.
Founded in 2018 by mechanical engineer Juan Carlos, Stupid Simple Tools is a collective of engineers and designers focused on discovering—and improving—the specialized shop tools & products we use daily.
For the past few years we have rooted ourselves at the intersection of iteration and novelty to create simple, smart & functional products.
The countless hours we’ve spent in our own R&D shop, manufacturing and working on equipment has led to our obsession with workshop and machinery accessories.
We came to find that most of the tools or equipment we could find online and in stores were missing the final touch; that hard-to-describe thing that took it from a good tool to a great tool. Either they were well crafted but with crappy graphic & surface design or well designed with cruddy materials or finishes—never both.
That was our goal—to be thoughtful and considerate of every detail; to make products that are just as beautiful as they are functional.
