We’re excited to announce our distinct collection of wine and bar accessories for BUILT NY was just honored in late April with multiple Italian A’ Design Awards

A collection based on simplicity, utility and a passion for materials, our BUILT NY line makes a bold statement with highly functional and well-crafted objects. Both our Arch Corkscrew and Arch Bottle Opener feature a sleek and minimal design elegantly contained in a single piece of stainless steel. These slim, compact designs are comfortable to hold and easy to use.  The ARCH Corkscrew is crafted with a two-step lever, which makes removing corks fast and easy. This corkscrew also features a foil cutter and bottle cap opener for multi-functionality.  Our stainless steel CURVE Flask is designed to be sleek enough to fit in most jacket pockets and includes a funnel for easy filling.
