A mysterious, organic shape for a practical object. The “Bulla” bottle opener is designed by Valerio Sommella for Alessi. This project is part of the “Objet Bijoux” collection. “Bulla” is the result of reflection into the adoption of natural shapes that do not immediately reveal their origins but which, even without explicitly announcing it, may have a purpose. Bulla is like a smooth shell, egg-shaped with a long opening: the bottle opener is compact, its smooth polished surface pleasing to the touch. The black leather cord completes the object and allows “Bulla” to be hung and enables you to take anywhere, even on a beach among the shells.
The Designer: Valerio Sommella, born in 1980 and graduated cum laude from the Politecnico of Milan in 2004, began his design career working with Stefano Giovannoni. He opened his Milan design studio in 2009 and designs products in different fields, from furniture to lighting for the international market.
