Brass Lotus Root Bottle Opener
From Sliced Food to Objet d'art
Apple slices, onion slivers and lotus root are foods commonly found in many homes. They're so common, in fact, that we don’t see them as anything else. But a pair of Japanese designers saw them as a gift of beauty from mother nature. So they decided to replicate these forms from pure brass, finishing them off with a distressed look.
The resulting series of brass household objects were named “cut piece.” From the collection, this lotus root (renkon) bottle opener perfect amount of whimsy to any table setting. They come in a set of 4 that vary in size so that they nest together, just like the skin of an onion.
Each are handmade by craftsman in Japan.
