Alessi Bulla Bottle Opener
Bottle opener in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished. Design Valerio Sommella., A mysterious, organic shape for a practical object. The “Bulla” Bottle opener is the first project designed by Valerio Sommella for Alessi.
This young Italian designer has worked on important projects and with big names, and sees the aesthetic approach as being closely linked to the object’s function. “Bulla” is the result of reflection into the adoption of natural shapes in the design of articles for everyday use.
Shapes that do not immediately reveal their origins but which, even without explicitly announcing it, may have a purpose.
