An enigmatic object designed as a result of a summer trip to Japan. “Boga” is a ginger grater fitted with hard-wearing, sharp stainless steel grater teeth. Practical and simple to use thanks to its evocative shape: the part that resembles the fish tail provides a convenient handle, while the slightly concave head collects and pours the grated contents.

About

Founded in 2009 in Milan, Valerio Sommella Studio works for a wide range of companies, focusing on lighting, furniture and everyday objects.

We see every project as an opportunity to represent our idea of design, based on an evolving relation between context, users, materials, technologies and beauty. The objects we design are not chapters of the same book, but short stories, each one with its own plot, characters and finale.

Among our Clients Alessi, Alcantara, Apple, Moooi, Kundalini, Falmec, Panasonic, Penta and many others

Via Pizzi 8
