We consider here two modes of relation to an instrument: “in-hand” and “put-down”. For the user, these two modes are phenomenologically mutually exclusive; we discuss the conditions for passing from one mode to the other. More precisely, the constitution and the effectiveness of the “in-hand” mode for a new tool depends on a process of appropriation that needs to be characterized and conceptualized. For the design of interaction,taking into account this appropriation process translates into writing a scenario for a disappearance, that of the tool itself, in favour of the space of action that the tool makes possible
