The design of brigata is above all the design of a handle. A recognizable  element with excellent functionality. The starting point can be found in the handles for professional pots,  made from pipes pressed, bent, welded or riveted. From here we started to define something confortable and balanced, shifting the concept from constructive brutality towords a formal elegance that manifests itself from the hook to the final part, tapered, curved and welded to the various elements that define the functions of each of the six pieces.

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.
