The Bottle Opener Diabolix by A di Alessi comes in the shape of a laughing devil’s face and opens any bottle cap in no time.
Created as part of the F.F.F. (Family Follows Fiction) metaproject, an operation in the early 1990s that aimed to explore the affective structure of shapes and objects, starting from the idea of reproducing the object creation process followed by children and primitive cultures.
The "Diabolix" bottle opener was a great success, perhaps because it married the creative energies of Centro Studi Alessi with a traditional object from the Alessi catalogue.
The shape of the Diabolix is as imaginative as it is comfortable to hold: Narrow on the bottom, the bottle opener tapers wider toward the upper end and leads to its characteristic face. The mouth of the devil’s face contains teeth that bite into the bottle caps and make opening any bottle a lot easier.
The bent handle lies perfectly in your hand and is nice to hold. At the same time, you get the impression that Diabolix arises from smoke or from a magic lantern. This reinforces the imaginative design, which is indicated by the head of the opener.
