Inspired by a trip to the East, Valerio Sommella designed “Boga”, a ginger grater. The namesake fish, with its tapered body and large ‘bug’ eyes, is the inspiration for this simple yet concurrently functionally sophisticated object. Enigmatic and appealing, the ginger grater “Boga” is perfect in the kitchen, but also suitable for use directly at the table.
Ginger grater in steel AISI 430 mat.
