Circus Bottle Opener by Jan Schmitt

Home > Winners > #50362


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Circus

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bottle Opener

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration came from a well designed bicycle saddle substructure that I saw two or three years ago browsing the web. When you had a look at the saddle, you would not see an analogy, but that's where the design development started. the saddle resembled a curved metal ribbon, just like the first Circus draft.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Circus is a deformed 1mm stainless steel sheet. The design is simple and as reduced as conceivable. There is no front and no back, no top and no bottom. It is mirror-symmetric in two axes and can be used to open cap bottles from four different positions. The 55mm in diameter round shape fits comfortably into every palm and the curved shape supports the pleasant feeling while holding the Circus inside your hand. It has a high gloss polished finish and round edges.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The opener is mirror-symmetric in two axis. You hold it in your palm. You can use it from four different positions

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The first draft was in January 2014 and was finished in September 2015

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
It's made of a 1mm 18/8 stainless steel sheet. It was stamped, pressed, deburred, polished and engraved.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
55mm x 55mm x 9mm

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I made a research of beautiful things on Pinterest and found an inspiring bicycle saddle. All the rest was done in my head an on paper :)

CHALLENGE:
Breaking the concept idea down, from the initial idea to a simple, manufacturable product
