fort standard + OTHR revive ico bottle opener in 3D printed black steel

 

 

brooklyn­-based design studio fort standard launches their second collaboration with 3D printed homewares brand OTHR: a limited edition version of their best­selling ‘ico bottle opener’ in 3D printed matte black steel. this is OTHR’s first limited run, with only 100 serialized versions of the bottle opener available in this material. earlier this year, fort standard made waves at new york design week with the first version of the geometric bottle opener in 3D printed bronze.

the minimalist object has since become a bestseller for OTHR, whose serialized objects are the product of collaborations with leading designers around the world. fort standard was founded by friends and collaborators gregory buntain and ian collings. the studio is focused on creating unique home goods and furniture. with an approach rooted in simplicity, functionality and attention to detail, the duo creates value through design in what they describe as a ‘warm­contemporary’ aesthetic.

 

‘it’s a more unique experience than your standard bottle opener,’ says collings of the object. ‘it can live in your environment and not in a drawer.’

each of the 20 facets on the icosahedron shape functions as a bottle opener, while showcasing the full potential of 3D printed steel. its three sides mean that there are actually 60 bottle openers in this one form. product tip: we enjoy the hidden trick of capturing your bottle cap within the piece after opening.

the limited edition bottle opener marks OTHR’s eighteenth line of 3D printed objects to launch since may. the collection ranges in material from 3D printed gold to silver to steel to porcelain, and includes ‘the grid cup & saucer’ by netherland native alissia melka­teichroew; ‘ee juicer’ by oslo / NYC-based everything elevated; the time in pour over collection by the london-­based michael sodeau; and the ‘kyou creamer’ by NYC-­based todd bracher. the four month ­old design brand launches new objects every two weeks, and continually announces new collaborations with designers and brands alike.
