anti-winter spoon


James Rennick is no one-trick pony.

Rather, the 22-year-old Irish designer has created a body of work that bears close examination and affords a sense of wonderment.

Witness his Spoon Bottle Opener (above).

    He writes,

    Spoon is a bottle opener. Not a spoon. During winter the household spoon is often associated with hot soup, warm porridge and cough syrup. All of which are synonymous with the drudgery of winter life.

    By placing a hole in the spoon it is rendered useless for these winter functions. Its new function as a bottle opener serves as an anti-winter product. Spoon embodies summer urban living; relaxing in the sun with friends over a barbecue and icy bottles of beer.

Anorexic's toilet paper -- each roll perforated its entire length with hundreds of quarter-sized holes.

A new world of counter-functional products. I like it.
