Fidget toys have become quite popular with adults who work in professional environments to keep their hands busy at their workstation, so the 'Spin Bottle Opener' has been designed as a dual-purpose alternative.
Designed by Nicholas Baker, the top features a high-quality metal build that gives it solid feel in the hand when being fidgeted with or spun. The middle section of the device features a cut out that is perfectly designed for popping the top off of bottles to make it the perfect toy to keep nearby when looking to crack open a drink at the end of a long day.
Baker spoke to Yanko Design about the 'Spin Bottle Opener' saying, "I’d been wanting to design a bottle opener for about 3 years at this point. I’d come up with previous designs, but found them to be extraneous and they didn’t seem to push the idea of a bottle opener. While exploring bottle opener ideas in VR, I thought it would be interesting to constrain my design by using the revolve tool. This gradually led me to create a spun form and add a handle. The resulting form resembled the classic spinning top toy. It felt like a perfect juxtaposition of functional object and a playful fidget toy."
