“Like the villain in Terminator, 'T-1000' is the static representation of fluid metal. Two drops of mercury come together; only moments earlier they were distinct elements and in just a few seconds they’ll become just one. At that precise moment, they are two slightly-concave surfaces on which to rest the dirty spoons while cooking.”

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.
