“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 Industrial designer, born in Tuscany in 1980. He graduated cum laude at the Politecnico of Milan in 2004, and began his design career with Stefano Giovannoni. After working for Marcel Wanders’ team in Amsterdam, he founded Valerio Sommella Design Studio in Milan. He has collaborated 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, carachters and finale.

Valerio Sommella Design Studio developed projects for companies such as Alessi, Calligaris, Deborah Milano, Fabbian, Falmec, Honda, Konica minolta, Kundalini, Il Coccio,  Modo, Moooi, Panasonic, Plust, Toyota, United pets, Vistosi and others.
