Forma by Zaha Hadid for Alessi

Updated: Jan 14, 2020

Joining the new collection is the Forma Grater, the last product designed for Alessi by the architect Zaha Hadid, before her death in March, 2016. Like many of her architectural works, the grater is inspired by natural forms that have been smoothed over time by water and by the wind. Consisting of two elements, a sculptural black base holding a mirror-polished stainless steel grater ‘Forma’ has an ergonomic shape designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Extremely easy to handle, its metal surface also features a unique hole pattern. Forma perfectly represents the 2004 Pritzker Prize winner’s visionary design, which absorbed ideas from the visual arts and processed them into small, tabletop works of architecture.
