Having a unique bottle opener can elevate any drinking opportunity to the next level, and this Ico Bottle Opener from Fort Standard out of Brooklyn is guaranteed to stand out.

Made from 3D printed matte black steel, this complex design showcases the full potential of 3D printed steel, as the design would not be possible to produce as a traditional casting.

…It’s Things Thursday: Headhoods?

Headhoods

Headhoods are ‘meticulously designed and hand-printed’ hoodies that feature profiles of famous people on the side so that when your hood is on, you can hide from the world and stare back at it at the same time.

They’re also made by ‘one devoted individual in his bustling studio located in a not so desirable part of Brooklyn, New York’ who got the idea ‘from a good coffee buzz’.

…Lottery tickets create the Ghost of a Dream?

Ghost Of A Dream

When Adam Eckstrom and Lauren Was were creating Ghost of a Dream, a full-scale model of a Hummer H3 made entirely of losing lottery tickets, they were thinking about “what people dream about when they scratch the coin against the ticket”. According to Was, “This is a ghost of all those dreams.”

The piece took about 2,400 hours of combined work to make over a six week period, and is covered in $35,000 of losing lottery tickets, which is also the sale price for the piece as well.

Tickets were gathered from areas all around Brooklyn, Miami and Minneapolis, as well as from friends that sent them in from as far as Seattle and Los Angeles. They were then glued to a plywood and metal frame, though being able to look through the grille or the windows and see the frame is part of the charm, as Was noted “it’s just a shell, it’s just a dream.”
