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.

Here’s more from OKOLO:

 

“Our exhibition project Open & Drink! … inspects how much can one specific function take the shape of sophisticated forms. Bottle openers shaped like wooden prisms, metal abstract compositions or romantic natural shapes, or an inspirational object. These and many more forms of this everyday object we bring to you at the exhibition Open & Drink! We don’t just evaluate the typology of the opener as it is, but also about the process of opening the beer, which can be opened with many things not purposed for it. That’s why you should open and drink!”

 

You heard them.
