Cheese Grater with Stand
Zaha Hadid for Alessi 2017
18/10 Stainless Steel, Melamine
[H 5.5" x L 8" x W 5.5"]
An organic shape inspired by pebbles smoothed down by water and wind, plied from stainless steel via a complex manufacturing process. “Forma” - its name emphasises its main feature (forma means shape in Italian) - is a grater designed to mould to the shape of your palm, making it easy and pleasant to hold. The perfect expression of the visionary design abilities of the Pritzker prize-winning architect, capable of absorbing facets of the visual arts and converting them into objects with fluid and dynamic shapes: small, sculptural tabletop architectures, like the cheese grater “Forma”.
NB: The asymmetrical sized holes allows for the cheese to be grated and sprinkled unevenly--giving a unique texture to any cheese.
