Building a diversified and mixed team of designers is a key principle for alma design; the influence of different styles and experiences makes room for emerging and renowned designers alike.
Valerio Sommella, born in Cortona in 1980 and graduated cum laude from the Politecnico of Milan in 2004, began his design career working with Stefano Giovannoni. In 2007 he moved to Amsterdam where he joined Marcel Wanders’ team. Since 2009, when he settled down in Milan and opened his design studio, he designs products in different fields, from furniture to consumer electronic goods and lighting both for Italian and international clients. He alternates this activity teaching at some Italian universities and design schools.
