If adding a bit of color to chrome-heavy bar tools this summer is a priority, Alessandro Mendini’s convincing, colorful Proust Parrot Sommelier Corkscrew would be a fanciful option. Released by Alessi in 2008, Proust—so named for Mendini’s signature pixel-like pattern that graces his most famous works—was a revamped version of his original monochromatic range of colors for the Alessi Parrot corkscrew. Made of cast aluminum, and comprised of foil cutter, bottle cap remover and corkscrew, the pocket-sized Proust corkscrew is hand-painted by Mendini—which is a pretty good reason in itself to want to possess it.
