tired of the traditional wall-mounted bottle opener in their kitchen, designers mike boylan and danielle pecora from wander workshop struck out to design something with a bit more edge to it. after two years of development and refinement, the result offers three minimalist and sleek accessories that can be proudly mounted on any kitchen wall or bar: the leverage handheld and wall-mounted bottle openers, as well as the leverage key hook.

boylan and pecora have developed the collection with the idea of flexibility in mind. for those who prefer a more direct use, the handheld design makes it a more adequate piece — compared to the wall-mounted option. rounding out the series is the key hook which doubles as a bottle opener that can be used on-the-go.

all three products will be cast in solid brass and sealed to minimize discoloration and darkening, which is common in natural uncoated brass. by applying this technique, it would preserve the aesthetic quality for years to come. wander workshop’s products will be made in the USA and a portion of the proceeds from every product sold will go to charity partners. for further information, you can check their kickstarter page here.
