Johnny Catch is a bottle opener for the wall. Inspired by the old casted openers we have developed a modern wall-opener with a catch-cup. If we reach the funding goal - we will produce.

What is this project all about?

From the first idea to the product in the market.

Johnny Catch was designed and developed by us, now we want to produce and market it.

We already developed some products. Regarding serial implementation and marketing we always cooperated with established manufacturers.
With Johnny Catch, we will try it for the first time to introduce the product on ourselves - it excites us - but is also a respectable challenge - we need your support – help us to bring Johnny Catch alive!

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Johnny Catch needs a home!

He would like to move in with…
the syle-concious beer drinker, bionade bourgeois, kiosk around the corner, Hells Angels Clubhouse, Band’s practice room, favorite bar, arbour, roof-deck, stylish kitchen, flat share, the bling bling club, imbiss, workshop…

Why would you support this project?

If we get the money – production will start - and you get a series Johnny of the first production! Each supporter is so to say Johnny's obstetrician.

We produce highest quality. The metal part is made of stainless steel (brushed on both sides), the catch cup is made of almost indestructible and surface-optimized plastic (black). We will produce 100 % in Germany.

outside Germany add 5 €
outside Europe add 10 €

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

For the production we need tools. These are expected to a total cost of about 15.000 €. With this crowdfunding campaign, we try to realize a partial financing.

If we reach the funding goal of 10.000 €, we will invest the remaining 5.000 € and start the Johnny Catch production. Then all of our supporters (who invested at least 23 €) get a series Johnny Catch of the first production.
If the funding goal is not reached, all supporters get their money back 100%.

Who are the people behind the project?

höfats | design + engineering
...a young product development office.

Christian Wassermann and Thomas Kaiser - we are engineers and product designers.

In our first degree - Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kempten (Allgäu) - we got to know us and started with the Bergmönch www.bergmoench.com our first joint project.

With the Bergmönch we tasted blood at product development. So after our engineering studies the conclusion was clear - we wanted to upgrade and realise more product ideas.

For a holistic product development - we completed afterwards a product design studies at the Art Academy Berlin Weissensee - this second studies has given us an incredible number of valuable new perspectives ...

... so we founded höfats | design + engineering www.hoefats.com

höfats represents the fusion of design and engineering
The immediate integration of the disciplines design and engineering has enormous potential.
As bivalent developers we bring the disciplines together.
