4:01 a.m. Bottle Opener Series ('I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy") — Episode 23: Loop Bottle Opener

Loop02-935-xxx

From the website:

..............................

Loop04-935-xxx

Designer Oscar Diaz approached this bottle opener as an industrial tool, simplified in a manner to provoke curiosity.

Loop03-935-xxx

Cast in Milwaukee, Wisconsin [my hometown], the design is equally informed by its end use, the rugged material (304 stainless steel), and the manufacturing process.

Loop has a rough vibratory-tumbled finish and will open bottles for as long as you're drinking them.

5"L x 3"W.

There is something about the clean angles of this and

the engravings in marble using a good engraving font

that tugs at past life if your subconscious allows a whiff of it.
