Transcending the traditional sofa concept, Atene is a simple seating system based on two elements, a linear one and an angle that can be combined to create multiple seating configuration. The name of the collection is a clear reference to Greek temples colonnade a linear array of massive cilindrical elements.

About

Valerio Sommella is an Italian Industrial designer, born in Tuscany in 1980. He graduated cum laude at the Politecnico of Milan in 2004, and began his design career with Stefano Giovannoni. After working for Marcel Wanders’ team in Amsterdam, he moved back to Milan where he founded Valerio Sommella Design Studio in 2009. He has collaborated with a wide range of companies, focusing on everyday objects, furniture, lighting and accessories, with the same attention for small scale production as well as mass market.

He considers every project as an opportunity to challenge his idea of design, a constant dialogue between context, users, materials, technologies and beauty. The resulting objects are not chapters of the same book, but short stories, each one with its own plot, characters and finale.

Over the years his Studio developed projects for companies such as Alessi, Moooi, Kundalini, Calligaris, Honda, Falmec, Konica minolta, Modo, Panasonic, and many others.
