You can find my bottle opener hidden in the kitchen drawer between all the other miscellaneous items. However there are some quite nicely designed 3D printed bottle openers that deserve a place on the table, I would say. Here are a few examples, varying from useful to nicely designed.
From one of my favorite brands, OTHR, comes this 3D printed metal bottle opener in the shape of an icosahedron (a polyhedron with 20 faces), designed by design studio Fort Standard. Thanks to 3D printing the design is very thin, though strong enough to open bottles. It is nicely designed and can also serve as a tabletop object.
The 3D printed bottle opener by Michiel Cornelissen in the picture is one of four in a collection of bottle openers, called Open Huis (open house). The bottle opener is inspired by the facades of Dutch houses.
The last 3D printed metal bottle opener is from design studio Visibility, based in New York. What I like about this design is how the triangular cross-section of the bottle opener determines the usability of the object. The manufacturing can only be done with 3D printing.
