“Socrates” de Jasper Morrison, un tire-bouchon qui se fixe comme but la recherche de la forme archétype de l'objet, est une allusion ironique à la maïeutique du philosophe athénien, à savoir l'art de tirer les bonnes réponses de son interlocuteur.

“Socrates” by Jasper Morrison is a corkscrew that seeks to achieve the object's archetypal form, and is a humorous allusion to the "Socratic method", i.e. the Athenian philosopher's art of extracting the right answers from the person you're dealing with.
