The Bottle stopper designed by Giulio Iacchetti is suitable for both wine and champagne bottles. It's produced in polished steel and has a rubber inner section to close the cap with a pressure and expansion mechanism.
Easy to use; insert by pressing and turning clockwise to fit the neck of the bottle. The shape of the object is reminiscent of a classic cork, which hermetically seals champagne bottles and their contents.

Giulio Iacchetti, industrial designer since 1992, designs for many brands including Alessi. The distinctive characteristics of his work is the research of new object typologies, like the Moscardino, the biodegradable spoon/fork designed with Matteo Ragni and for which, in 2001, he has been awarded with Compasso d’Oro. In 2009 he was awarded the prize for innovation – Premio dei Premi – by the President of the Italian Republic for the Coop Eureka project. In May 2009 the Triennale di Milano held a solo exhibition entitled Giulio Iacchetti. Disobedient objects. In 2014, he won his second Compasso d’Oro for the design of the manhole covers Sfera, designed with Matteo Ragni for Montini.
Since its establishment in 1921, Alessi has gradually evolved, becoming a leading exponent of the “Factories of Italian design”, capable of mediating between the most interesting expressions of international creativity and the public, society and the market. Its mission is to translate these creative expressions into real objects capable of fulfilling dreams and satisfying the public’s desires.
