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, Moooi, Kundalini, Calligaris, Honda, Falmec, Konica minolta, Modo, Panasonic, and many others.

Shapes and Sounds

Shapes and Sounds is a video project developed by Valerio Sommella and the director Massimiliano Bomba to tell the story of a yearslong collaboration between Valerio Sommella Design Studio and Alessi. The movie explores a kitchen landscape through a tale of images and environmental hi resolution sounds, telling the story of each single object with the sounds that it generates.
