Using a dynamic process the shape of the bottle opener is generated from a flat plane.

The flat surface is transforming gradually into the final shape considering perfect leverage and grip needed to effortlessly open a bottle.

The opener is made from 1.5 mm thick 3d printed steel, ca 11.5cm long and available in multiple finishes.
