    Cactus is a symbol of hope in the situation of thirsty in the desert.

  • The Y-like shape is chosen as a developing form style, with the feature of curves having the function of a bottle opener.

  • OPEN YAY utilises Class 2 as an ideal way to open bottles.

  • The final model applied 304 stainless steel using laser cutting.
