Socrates Corkscrew

£115
Socrates, designed by Jasper Morrison, is an innovative yet playful corkscrew that seeks to achieve the object's archetypal form, and is a humorous allusion to the "Socratic method," i.e. the Athenian philosopher's art of extracting the right answers from the person you're dealing with.

The products Alessi made were some of the first design items I came across when I was still at primary school and probably many of us growing up in the 90's. Interacting with them widened my perspective to how playful everyday objects and interactions could become, they showed me a new way to approach life not only design, to find the beauty in the smallest details and to create moments of joy through the smallest touch points. This is something we are still students of at HATO and still pursue.
