Ceramic vase, Ionico series.

Everything tells a piece of our story.
Like the IONICO vase that is inspired by the history of art.
Ionico features a matte lacquer finish on the outside and a glossy finish on the inside.
Ionico vases mimic the capitals of Greek temples, transformed, however, into objects of common use.
Valerio Sommella is an industrial designer born in Cortona and raised in Milan where he graduated with honours at the Polytechnic. He spent the first years of his career working for important design studios between Milan and Amsterdam. Then in 2009, he opened his own studio. He collaborates with Italian and international companies designing products ranging from lighting to furniture, from consumer electronics to accessories, with a marked preference for large projects but without overlooking smaller series. He considers each project as an opportunity to narrate his concept of design, which investigates the language of objects through formal, material, and technological research without ever losing sight of the clients and the public he addresses. The resulting objects are therefore not chapters of the same book, but short stories, of various genres, each with its own plot, characters and ending but united by the same writing style.
Over the years he has developed projects for companies including Alessi, Alcantara, Apple, Moooi, Kundalini, Calligaris, Honda, Falmec, Konica Minolta, Modo, Panasonic, Penta, Vistosi and many others.
