The Bottle Opener by Brendan Ravenhill, a product designer based in Los Angeles, California, is a minimalist design that will appeal those who appreciate the rustic vintage aesthetic when it comes to home decor and accessories. At first, it will appear to look like a simple doorstop that has had a nail jammed in it. Nevertheless, this nail has been placed strategically to catch the bottom of bottle caps. It also has a built-in magnet that catches the cap before it falls off.
Created for Areaware, the Bottle Opener by Brendan Ravenhill is made out of beech or walnut wood. It comes available in either a plain finish or with blocks of color including orange, blue and white.
