Brendan Ravenhill & Areaware's
Magnetic Bottle Opener
During a childhood spent in Cote'd'Voire and coastal Maine, Brendan Ravenhill was gripped by the functional beauty and rustic simplicity of working tools and wooden boats. Flash forward to college, first at Oberlin for a degree in sculpture, the RISD for industrial design. That love is evident in this simple tool with two magnets: one captures the bottle cap, the other holds opener to the fridge. Based in Los Angeles, Brendan's prolific output includes furniture, lighting and buildings (including a cool face-lift of Osteria La Buca). On his off time, he's doing what else? Building or playing in boats.
