#HOPKNOCKER is nothing more than a term for a family line of objects whose main function is to open different types of bottles, and thus it is simply an "opener". In free translation, it's a "hop knocker".
#ANT is a solution for those looking for something small. As in the case of #SKULL and #OWL, the final shape is the result of a design process and a search for a form, for which the starting point was the head of an insect - an ant (on an appropriately larger scale). Two symmetrically folded copies form a simplified „ANT”. The opener is compact and fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, while at the same time acting as a "something to have".
My name is Paweł and I live in Poznań. I have always been fascinated with constructing, designing and creating various (needed or less needed) things, so I am glad that I can both professionally and as a hobby fulfill my youthful fascinations, at work: as a creative constructor and for two years now as a hobby: FORMA/FORM, creating objects from copper and brass. This second activity gives me a strong sense of fulfillment (because I can!). I dream that in a few years' time passion will turn into a main professional activity, as a designer and a manufacturer of classic "things to have".
My main interest is the form, simple but with a hidden "taste". The first two batches of product were hand-made from scratch. Nowadays, after cutting with water, I try to finish the raw shapes individually so that each item is unique. Patina for openers and stones "to have" I choose randomly, and their quantity I assume in advance for a given month and possibly alter them afterwards.
I try to make every opener or object that I create meet the aesthetic and functional requirements. My products undergo a strict evaluation and I make sure that they fit the convection, thanks to which they acquire a unique character, and at the same time are fully usable for the possibilities of their FORMS and materials used.
As a result of the patination process, the colour of copper and brass changes over time.
