A MULTI-FUNCTIONAL KITCHEN UTENSIL
Alessandro Busana drew his inspiration for the Pizza Wheel from the dining table. For him, this is an almost magical place where you can sit down with family or friends to discuss the events of the day over a relaxing dinner.
Alessandro Busana explains: ”Maybe it's because I'm Italian, but when I think of an informal dinner with friends or family, a pizza with a cold beer or soft drink are almost a ritual. This observation quickly led me to the idea of having a bottle opener and cutting function in one and the same product. This means that you only have to remember to take one item with you to the dining table. This practical aspect is one of the reasons I really like to design objects that are multi-functional.”
Alessandro Busana graduated from Scuola Italiana Design in 1999. After graduating, he worked for two years in the creative design lab at the school. After that, he became part of JoeVelluto Studio for two years before deciding to pursue a career on his own. Since then, he has been making both furniture and everyday objects as a freelance designer with his own studio - Hole Designstudio.“For me design is a creativity that can become a part of us daily, living every day with us through objects that we can touch, open and move. I want the objects that I design to speak to our emotions through beauty and simple but unexpected details. But they should also be practical and make our lives easier. So for me good design is when you achieve synergy between a beautiful shape and great functionality.”
