Frame Bottle Cap Opener

By Futagami 

Futagami’s Bottle Cap Opener (¥2,625Prices are approximate only and subject to change.

) looks almost sculptural, partly because of the material used — brass — but also due to the uncompromising, clear shape by designer Masanori Oji.

Oji’s collaboration with one of Japan’s oldest and most traditional metalware manufacturers Futagami has resulted in an entire series of very unique objects, all inspired by heavenly bodies.

The poetic influence isn’t as noticeable in this straight-forward functional item, but lingers in the chosen way of processing, the way the surface has been polished and brushed, and the almost lovingly set curve of the lever.
