With a clean, approachable form and clear function, the E1 Multi 8 screwdriver is a thoughtful update to an everyday classic, intended for maintaining the modern home. The ergo body is shaped to fit hands large and small, while keeping the 3 extra bits out of sight. The tips fit a common need, and are stored under the magnetic end cap. Made of high-grade materials for longevity and delivered in premium packaging, a portion of proceeds from the sales of the Screw Cancer™ E1 Multi 8 screwdriver go directly to support community charities to help fund treatments, and provide education and support.

Hofer Studio was founded by Joseph Hofer, a multiple award-winning Canadian industrial designer. The studio approaches design projects with the user at the forefront, innovating the experience, and building with quality to celebrate and communicate a product's purpose and value. Collaborating with a number of entrepreneurial ventures focused on the redefining of products based on technology, business, and experience innovations, the studio recently won a European Product Design Award for Pair Knife.
