The TI-1 cutlery is one of Takenobu Igarashi's many artworks, including sculpture, graphic design, furniture, and many more. This series of dinnerware was designed for Tsubame Shinko Co. Ltd. Like majority of his works, which are composed of elemental forms, this bottle opener consists of simple circle and straight lines. This is what makes it timeless.
Takenobu Igarashi's works are in the permanent collection of over 30 museums across the world. He is an emeritus professor of Tama Art University.
