Alessi Pop-Up- 02.19.08

alessibo1.jpgIn the Alessi 2008 Spring/Summer collection is the new Pop-Up Bottle Opener. This beautiful piece is designed by Giovanni Alessi Anghini, great-grandson of Giovanni Alessi, founder of the company. It should also be no surprise that Giovanni Jr. has put in his time at Stefano Giovannoni’s Milan studio, and is now coming into his own. Apparently this mirror polished stainless steel bulb of a bottle opener has a magnet within that holds onto the cap once you push down to open a bottle. See an image of it on a bottle after the jump!

p.s. does this remind anyone else of J Schatz’s egg bird feeders, lamps, etc?

Is it wrong that it reminds me more of the original “Alien” movie poster? I’m a sucker for shiny though, and this certainly fits the bill!
