Amenity Bottle / Daily life thing

Amenity Bottle

It’s not easy to open the bottle if the top is round and the traditional holder is not comfortable or simple considering craft.
According to ergonomics, a little change is made to ease the hand when do the opening job. From the top view, it looks like a UFO or a Saturn with a thick ring of light. The ring of light is the support when holding the bottle and is also the lever when people manage to open the bottle.
Referring to the craft, this top can be made with disposable plastic stamping, injection molding, instead of two different patterns separately for tops and holders, which will reduce a mass of cost.
