The Areaware Bottle Opener designed by Los Angeles-designer Brendan Ravenhill makes popping open bottles almost as fun as drinking what’s inside them. Almost. Sophisticated in its rustic simplicity, the bottle opener uses a single nail to get the job done plus two magnets, one that smartly grabs the bottle cap after opening and the other to hold the opener to the fridge.
Material: Beech or Walnut. Dimensions: 4.5 x 1.5 x .75 inches.
Available for purchase now at Wicked+, located at 145 Pier Ave., Hermosa Beach, CA.
