Bottle Opener by Holger Krogh
Manufactured: 1937 - present
Designer: Holger Krogh
The most-produced B&O product! "Here's to you! The only Bang & Olufsen product money can't buy!
From the very beginning, 60 years ago, Peter Bang and Sven Olufsen stuck to the principles of functional design, perfect performance and exquisite craftsmanship. This has inspired a great many people, and among these a young man called Holger Krogh. Originally a railway engineer he was later employed by Bang & Olufsen in Struer where he in his spare time created this eye-catching opener - using the fundamental B&O principles. That was in 1937 and the opener's design is still the same after all these years. So are the fundamental ideas of Bang & Olufsen.
Just goes to show that the good things in life are timeless!
The Bang & Olufsen bottle opener has been around in various guises since 1937. The red-coloured package containing a bottle opener stems from the early 1990's - given away free as 'the only Bang & Olufsen product that money really couldn't buy!' The present-day variety is the same as it always was, but is presented in a matt black holder instead.
Finish: polished stainless steel
Dimensions/weight: 85 x 37mm / 25g
