VS1 capsule is conceived as a personal interpretation of MODO’s exclusive Paper-Thin Titanium collection.  Made with 0.6 mm-thick Beta Titanium 153 and the TR 90 Polyamide,  this collection reduces the size of the Polyamide rim to reveal the frame’s architecture, calling attention to the innovative design that makes Paper-Thin Titanium so unique.

About

Valerio Sommella is an Italian industrial designer, born in Tuscany and raised in Milan where he graduated with Honors at the Design Department of the Milan Polytechnic. He spent the first years of his career working for important design practice between Milan and Amsterdam before he founded Valerio Sommella Design Studio in 2009. His studio 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, Apple, Moooi, Kundalini, Calligaris, Honda, Falmec, Konica minolta, Modo, Panasonic, and many others.
