We say it all the time: The best ideas are the simple ones! A single bent nail functions as a lever to pry open your beer or soda. A magnet catches the bottle cap, preventing it from falling on the floor.
A "piece" - or better bottle opener - designed by Brendan Ravenhill for Areaware is skillfully carved to perfectly follow the shape of your hand; a nail is inserted in the front and bent 90 degrees; lastly 2 magnets are placed in just the right spot and there you have it, an amazingly simple bottle opener.
OK, not really that simple, a standard nail would turn and come out, the magnets hold the bottle cap when opening or make the opener adhere to the fridge when not in use, and yes, the wood is gorgeous, but other than that, it is brilliant!Now in addition to the traditional models also available in solid colors: Pollen, Salmon,Tomato, Ultramarine, Tidepool, Jade
