The Jester Corkscrew by Marcel Wanders for Alessi (limited edition of 999 corkscrews)


Marcel Wanders gives this corkscrew the form of a lively, jumping jester bedecked in a multicoloured diamond costume. The Jester appears atop one of those platforms that circus artists use to perform their acts as they prepare to dazzle with a leap or a pirouette. The designer cleverly conceals the functional parts of the corkscrew within the design of the character. The element resembling a circus platform conceals the worm and is the part positioned on the neck of the bottle, while the jester's pointed hat forms a practical grip that facilitates removal of the cork.
