This bottle opener is an exercise in distillation. It is a simple yet highly refined tool with a singular purpose. Conceived and self-produced for partner project OOO, it is the product of a long and patient development process rarely afforded to such a humble object. The result is entirely functional, but quietly remarkable. It is an object which elevates the thoughtless act of opening a bottle into an unexpectedly visceral pleasure.
We find bottle openers strangely emotive objects. They are something which seemingly everyone has a memory of, yet they are so ubiquitous and almost always anonymously designed, apart from the occasional promotional branding applied as a superficial afterthought.
The OOO bottle opener on the other hand, has a very carefully sculpted shape which is entirely derived from its function and combines geometric complexity with a simple silhouette. It nonetheless remains faithful to the classic typology. Made from mirror-polished cast stainless steel, it is a clear expression of materiality with an inviting smoothness and satisfying heft.
