the stainless steel bottle opener ‘fuso’ (italian for liquefied), symbolizes its specific fabrication process through precision investment casting. the form is a fluid and tactile interpretation of the beer brand’s recognizable ribbon, and has an elongated shape that ensures effortless movement when opening a bottle.

the second product morgante has developed is ‘algor’, a thermal insulted double-wall decanter cooler that prevents external condensation whilst keeping the contents chilled for a minimum of 30 minutes. manufactured by alessi in italy, the chiller is made from high-grade PMMA which is fully recyclable.

andrea morgante describes his influcences for the design of ‘algor’, ‘I was interested in emphasizing the function of the chiller by physically manifesting the cold temperature and the act of thermal energy transfer via its shape. like a clear block of ice, caught in the act of melting. the chiller reveals crisp ‘frozen’ edges and soft, melting folds, conveying the haptic illusion of cold’.
