What is the name of the circular metamorphosis that the illusionist Hans Klok performes and where could I find it?

Thanks in advance

Would you have a video link for the particular one you are referring to. Hans uses many versions, not sure about the round though.

The first trunk of Hans Klok was build by John Hedy, about 30 years ago. Some of his latest trunks were build by Dutch Illusion Design (Dick Kalisvaart) in Holland.

As completion:
This was his first trunk. When he bought it, the color was green. Many years later he accepted the advice: Hans it's more appealing when "the hatbox" is red.

It seems to be a standard hatbox style sub trunk. Bill Smith has also built many illusions for Hans. But any good builder should be able to turn one out for you.

I know his Father and his Stagehand build several of his trunks.

His favorite to use (he has several ) is the black one because there is nothing to see even from the balcony with the people looking down from above...

It's not just a standard hatbox style sub trunk because there are some details that are different from other trunks I've seen.

Also important to know is that Hans put many many hours of rehearsal into this and it's not uncommen for him or for his assistant to have severe bruises from performing it!
It's not just the prop you know that does all the work ;-)

Thank you all for all this information I would never be able to find any of this on my own. In response to @RVH Magic I know that the prop doesn't do all the work I just thought that the style of it looked nice

The Sub Trunk that Hans uses is the one called HAT BOX Illusion, in the UK many years ago Peter Diamond use to make them
and I'm not sure but I think the design was Bob Harbins version.
