Jammed between the molars or against the curb of the road, prised with the heel of a shoe, the belt buckle, the lighter or the key ring, alternative methods for getting that crafty bit of metal off the top of the beer bottle come in many guises. But the real deal, the bottle opener, is a work of beauty and simplicity and its wonder is being celebrated by Czech creatives OKOLO’s new exhibition Open & Drink!
Launching their new gallery Pedal Project Studio on August 15 in Prague with this corker of an exhibition, OKOLO are presenting bottle openers from all over the world, from across the generations. And, as self-confessed beer lovers, they have added extra flavour, joining forces with the Vyškov brewery so that you can sip their very own OKOLO beer while admiring the work of its opener.
