VIRGULA DIVINA, FOR ALESSI

One of the foundations to simple design is the simplicity and clarity of the concept behind it.

When Alessi came to us to design a bottle opener as an extension of their unique gifting range, we used dowsing rods as our inspiration – Virgula Divina in latin. For centuries these Y-shaped sticks have been used to find underground sources of water. Like a bottle opener, a tool that quite literally provides access to a liquid.

Taking the concept through the whole design, we even shaped the opener itself to mirror the broken end of a twig, just like an original dowsing stick.
