Williamsburg-based Areaware has a reputation for cutting-edge products that pair quirky, contemporary aesthetics with natural materials—all created in collaboration with the best young design talent America has to offer. Los Angeles designer Brendan Ravenhill's Bottle Opener puts a playful twist on woodworking tools. A heavy nail wrapped around a beautifully smooth piece of beech wood, this cap opener does more than exude workshop-chic: with a magnet on the back and front, it's ready to take a permanent position on your fridge and make flying bottle caps a thing of the past.
