Product of the week: 9/2/08

Alessi’s Pop-Up isn’t the first pressurized bottle opener we’ve ever seen, but it’s easily the classiest. Designed by Giovanni Alessi Anghini—great-grandson of the Italian manufacturer’s founder—it’s the designer’s first solo effort, having recently completed a short stint at Stefano Giovannoni’s studio. Simply clamp the mirror-polished steel device down on a bottle’s neck and with a gentle push, the cap pops off, held in check by a magnet inside; $47. www.alessi.com
