Cast in brass directly from hand-carved waxes, this bottle opener shows evidence of its handmade origin with the character of filing marks and a raw unfinished feel.
Fort Standard is a contemporary industrial design studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. Their collaborative work is an ever-evolving dialog between their unique perspectives and their shared approach to progressive design thinking. Working primarily with long-lasting natural materials, they have a penchant for using traditional production methods in innovative ways. Having developed a distinct form language rooted in simplicity and functionality, their attention to detail, connections, and materiality generate value through design in what Buntain and Collings describe as a “warm-contemporary” aesthetic. http://fortstandard.com/
