Luke Smith-Wightman Pivo

What exactly is the Pivo. Is it a garden utensil? A railway spike? A jousting lance for a mouse? Nope. Leave it lying about at parties and see if your guests can figure it out. Watch as they lever a sticky kitchen drawer open with it whilst trying to find a bottle opener. Oh how we laughed. This fantastic, extraordinary, you guessed it, bottle opener is designed by Luke Smith-Wightman and makes the perfect puzzling present. Beautifully turned from a single piece of solid brass it has all the heft of a well engineered thingamabob and being brass it is easy to find amongst all the stainless steel in the utensil drawer. But be warned, once used it is difficult to put down and may encourage a little too much imbibing such is the simple pleasure of its operation. Pivo, it’s what beer is made for. Apparently.

Luke Smith-Wightman studied furniture and product design before entering the field of architectural lighting design. Much of his time is spent on lighting projects and daylight design consultancy for architecture, through his company Fine Science. His interest in developing useful objects is driven by dissatisfaction with much of what is presented as contemporary design and a fascination with production technologies. He believes good design is too often presented as added value, something in addition to the process of developing a useful thing. An object may be described as ‘designer’ or may reference the person who designed it but this is rarely because the object is good but is more likely a marketing ploy. There are design shows, design blogs and design awards, there is too much design, it is being devalued through saturation. He feels the answer is to put the designer behind the object, let the object speak for itself, if it is good enough it will be heard.
