Description

A DARTING PAPER KNIFE
Paper knife in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished.

Pes is a paper knife for the office designed by Giulio Iacchetti that is reminiscent of a fish starting from its very name that, in the dialect of the designer's hometown, Cremona, means fish. The tail is flat for an easy grip and the slightly-sharp nose functions as a letter opener. The object's thickness and sinuous curves give it a pleasant visual and tactile sensation.

About the designer:
Giulio Iacchetti, industrial designer since 1992. The distinctive characteristics of his work is the research and definition of new object typologies, like the Moscardino, the biodegradable spoon/fork designed with Matteo Ragni and for which, in 2001, he has been awarded with Compasso d'Oro. In 2009 he was awarded the prize for innovation - Premio dei Premi - by the President of the Italian Republic for the Coop Eureka project, which brought the design in the large-scale retail trade.
