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. The opener is mirror-symmetric in two axis. You hold it in your palm. You can use it from four different positions.
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.
The inspiration came from a well designed bicycle saddle substructure that Jan Schmitt 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.
