‘Open & Drink’, curated by Prage-based studio OKOLO, presents an array of formally and materially diverse bottle openers from around the world

That prosaic, yet joyful, object of the everyday, the bottle opener, is celebrated at a new exhibition called ‘Open & Drink’ at the OKOLO/Pedal Project Studio in Prague.

 

Curated by self-styled ‘creative group’ OKOLO, whose multidisciplinary activity – covering design, architecture, art and fashion – results in such projects as online journalism, exhibitions and special projects, ‘Open & Drink’ presents several contemporary and historical bottle openers from around the world, examining the difference within this object type in terms of form, material and rhetoric. Also on display and definitely for consumption will be the collective’s own new brand of beer, OKOLO Pivo, the result of a collaboration between the Prague studio and the Vyškov brewery.
