Taio Pizza Wheel
The pizza cutter Taio, designed by Valerio Sommella, is an object with soft and sinuous shapes. Taio resembles a box, a pouch into which the pizza cutter has been inserted. The designer has managed to recreate the typical softness of fabric in a hard material like steel, giving the item an attractive and sophisticated feel. This feature serves to soften a sharp, everyday object normally associated with an action perceived as dangerous and aggressive.
