Sfrido, the potato peeler designed by Valerio Sommella (Italian, 1980-) is part of the collection Objects Bijoux. Its very name ("Sfrido" means sharp in Italian) hints at its function--a clear reference to the waste produced when using it.

The inspiration of the name came from the story: Sigurd and His Sword, describing the sharp sword cuts through an anvil and a dragon. The shape of Sfrido resembles the shape of a ribbon, a continuous band that gently bends, twists, and encloses the blade. The curves enables users to hold the object naturally, guaranteeing an ergonomic grip and comfort. It is suitable for all types of vegetables and fruit.
