Back to basic

Normann 130034_Basic_Corkscrew_2

“Honesty is what makes a product understandable,” says designer Simon Legald, whose functional, paredback aesthetic has now been poured into a new collection for Danish design brand Normann Copenhagen. Basic is a series of wine accessories, including this bronze corkscrew, made from titanium-coated stainless steel and silicone. The unexpectedlyindustrial materials lend it a smooth, matt finish, while its simple form trumps any novelty equivalent tenfold. £28.75.
