L’Atelier du Vin designer Margherita has revisited our two iconic corkscrews, wrapping them in red and blue leather.
Still the same simple design, but with a little extra zing.
The Bilame corkscrew features Ginger red leather, but stays true to the model’s classic simplicity in unrefined zamak, with links left deliberately visible.
Suspended from a black leather cord, the Les Bons Amis Bilame corkscrew can be worn around the neck or wrist for spur-of-the-moment picnics or evenings with friends.
Meanwhile, the lever corkscrew – L’Atelier du Vin’s other iconic tool – has been galvanized with Cobalto blue leather, in a move that will delight purists and fun lovers alike, showcasing rivets painted a matte black.
Les Bons Amis go hand-in-hand, combining functionality with aesthetic design. The Bilame is perfectly suited to older bottles, while the lever corkscrew can handle all the rest.
Presented in a high-quality cardboard gift box, in a nod to the unrefined materials making up both corkscrews, the Les Bons Amis set is the perfect gift for a friend who enjoys French art de vivre and fine wine. We didn’t call it “Les Bons Amis” – “good friends” in French – for nothing.
My idea was to marry unrefined and noble materials. To showcase the unrefined metals in the Les Bons Amis corkscrews, I decided to wrap them in leather. Then, since they are both icons for L’Atelier du Vin, I wanted to highlight their similarities and complementarities. So I played with the color of the edges, opting for red leather with a blue edge for one, and blue leather with a red edge for the other.
