A graphic project that starting from encyclopedic illustrations of fish, reproduces, reflects and breaks them down to destruction through the use of irregular kaleidoscopes.
Born from research on geometry and animalier prints, illusioni ittiche explores the possibility of random creation and the loss of control over the final result: large images showing a gradual transition from the representation of readable subjects to abstract and purely graphic ones.
Limited edition of 4 pieces

About

Valerio Sommella is an Italian Industrial designer, born in Tuscany in 1980. After graduating with Honors at the Politecnico of Milan he spent years working for important design practice between Milan and Amsterdam before he founded Valerio Sommella Design Studio in 2009. He works 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, Alcantara, Moooi, Kundalini, Calligaris, Honda, Falmec, Konica minolta, Modo, Panasonic, and many others.
