Minimalist bottle openers

After discovering Brendan Ravenhill’s excellent wood and nail bottle opener, I started thinking about how I’ve always appreciated the simplistic bottle opener over anything more ornamental or complex. Searching around online I realized that bottle openers are much like watches, in that there are literally thousands of designs that accomplish the exact same task. Here are some of the best I found.

The marli bottle opener from Alessi, designed by Steven Blaess. Admittedly this is the opener we’ve been using here at headquarters since 2008 and I love its ergonomic steely goodness.

It’s easy to take for granted the magic of electricity in your home, but these whimsical self-adhesive stickers are a clever reminder of what it really takes to light your room or power your vacuum. PVC-free and standardized for use in the UK, I'm sensing a US market opportunity here. For sale on Hu2. (via holycool.net)

Brittny Badger is taking items from her friends junk drawers and creating order from their chaos. She also disassembles lots of appliances. Given the opportunity I could probably organize stuff like this for hours, so Brittny please let me know if you need an assistant. (via coudal)
