Story

“During my last trip to Japan, I often found myself wandering around Kappabashi-dori, a street in Tokyo lined with stores that deal exclusively in kitchen utensils. Obviously, I spent quite a few hours there, and among everything I brought back to Italy there were all kinds of graters for ginger, wasabi, daikon, different in size, material and price. Simple objects, made of a single material, very specific in their function and, for me, extremely fascinating. When I returned to Milan, I could not help but design one.
