Considering the simple task that bottle openers need to achieve, it's surprising that more designers don't take risks in the same way that Graf did with its Brass Lotus Root bottle opener. The attractive kitchen tool is modeled after the distinctive shape of a sliced lotus root, using the gaps within that natural phenomenon as the levers whereby a bottle opener grabs purchase on a cap.

The best kitchen accessories are the ones that don't feel as though they need to be hidden away in cabinets. Not only is the Brass Lotus Root bottle opener a useful tool, but it's also attractive enough to leave out as a quirky centerpiece, whether in the kitchen or in any other room throughout the entirety of one's living space.
