"In designing 'Sfrido', I wanted to approach this type of object by trying to study, as well as a new form, a new way of using it, to make a product that would be convenient but not perceived as a simple tool. Hence the idea to maintain the size very compact in order to create a vegetable peeler that, rather than act as an extension of the arm, reduced the distance between the hand and the vegetable, making the gesture more natural, leaving the user to decide how to hold it."

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 define 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, Calligaris, Honda, Falmec, Panasonic, Penta.
