GEOMETRY by Margherita Matticari
Paris-based Italian designer Margherita Matticari offers an authentic and unique vision that combines innovative design with outstanding craftsmanship. The result? Functional, elegant and timeless objects that are made to be used. Made for life. Geometry marks Margherita’s second collaboration with L’Atelier du Vin, after her exceptional design of the Nomad Collection in 2021.
Geometry: Is it a gift box or a sculpture?
Actually, it’s both! Our vision behind Geometry was to create a box/sculpture piece. Serving as a box, Geometry opens to reveal the iconic L’Atelier du Vin corkscrew, Oeno Motion Gold. At the same time, whether open or closed, Geometry is a sculpture and work of art in its own right.
Why call it Geometry?
Put simply, we wanted to play with geometric shapes.
When closed, Geometry is composed of two triangles. When opened, a circle is revealed with Oeno Motion Gold in its center. The circular design is a nod to the instantly recognizable circle on the corkscrew. The circle and the triangle are essential shapes evoking body and spirit. The shapes also help push the minimalist theme to its limit.
Geometry is not a static object; it is dynamic. When closed, it serves as decorative. When open, it’s an invitation to be put to use and savor fine wines.
What was behind the choice in materials?
We selected black lacquered wood for a touch of elegance and purity, using what is essentially the iconic color of luxury. We played on marrying black and gold to enhance the geometric shapes and create a striking emotion. Thus, when opened, the matte black serves to accentuate the shine and glimmer of Oeno Motion Gold.
Overall, Geometry is an interplay of shapes and perspectives which, as I see it, belongs on a mantlepiece, coffee table, or surrounded by books on a shelf.
Each piece is unique because they are all made by hand. Geometry serves as an invitation to add beautiful form and perfect function to your home.
The Geometry of Wine in a Designer Corkscrew Set
Just as wine is enveloped in a bottle, this stainless-steel bottle opener is encapsulated in a timeless, beautiful black lacquered wooden sculpture. Inside the minimalist box lies an oenological treasure of exceptional craftsmanship: the Oeno Motion Gold corkscrew, ready to open a fine bottle of red, white or rosé wine.
Its foolproof mechanism enables to effortlessly extract the cork, much to the delight of wine connoisseurs. This prestigious corkscrew, complete with a foil cutter discreetly located in the inner side of its jaw, provides a good grip and solid support on the neck. Simply push the lever down to plunge the worm into the cork and pull it up to effortlessly extract it.
Remove the corkscrew from the bottle and repeat this movement to release the cork from your authentic sommelier tool, in preparation of your next tasting experience. This back-and-forth movement is reflected by the subtle sliding motion of the sculpted Geometry box, which opens and closes like a tribute to the art of revealing and hiding, or the ancestral secrets of wine making.
Oeno Motion Gold Geometry, an Exceptional Corkscrew
This powerful bottle opener, a technical and ergonomic masterpiece that encapsulates the art of living wine, was designed to last, as an heirloom to be passed from one generation to the next.
Oeno Motion Gold stands out from the other corkscrews in our wine accessory collections for the impression of power and grandeur it conveys both visually and physically.
Each metallic part of the mechanism has been carefully studied, designed, strengthened and perfected by our designers and engineers to find the perfect balance between a sturdy tool, a smooth hand movement, a reliable opening mechanism and a gorgeous design.
This collector’s lever corkscrew can be used on bottles and corks of all shapes and sizes, offering different ergonomics than a sommelier, waiter’s friend, twin blade, endless or winged corkscrew.
Both steady and reassuring, Oeno Motion Gold Geometry is the ideal corkscrew to carefully extract a cork; a must-have accessory to open a bottle of aged wine from your cellar that has finally reached maturity. Sommeliers, oenologists, wine merchants and connoisseurs particularly appreciate this corkscrew.
The Geometry set, designed by Margherita Matticari, will also delight collectors and lovers of wine and art, in line with the rare corkscrew sets and collector bottle openers created by L’Atelier du Vin, a French manufacturer of wine tools from father to son since 1926.
