Gorgeous, colourful, rounded postmodernism and it will help you to open your drink: voila the corkscrew according to Ettore Sottsass!
This is a tool both beautiful and useful, with an ergonomic shape that's comfortable to hold. Made in Italy using a partly hand-crafted turning process with wood from sustainably managed forests. Coloured with water-based and totally solvent-free paints that are sustainable for the environment and not harmful to human health.
Approximate dimensions: 2.36 inches diameter, 7.09 inches high.
Originally created in 1989, the Italian design house Alessi celebrates its centennial in 2021/22 by introducing the Alessi 100 Values Collection. The collection will include 12 projects, each of them presenting a different value behind the brand. The Twergi is one of the first to arrive. How better to kick off the party than with Sottsass, one of the most influential innovators, thinkers and rebels of 20th-century design.
