CRESTADIGALLO.obj is an ornamental object that can be used as a stool or low table.
The shape of this object is inspired by the “cresta di gallo”, a particular pasta format
not so common but part of the more than 300 shapes of pasta existing worldwide.
The origin is not certain but it can most likely be traced back to the Ligurian territories.
It is a format that reproduces the Chifferi Rigati by adding a wavy ribbon at the top similar to a cockscomb. Thanks to digitally modified extrusion simulations was possible to merge 4 “Creste di gallo” to give shape to a new object available in Tomato Red limited edition.

GIANMARIA DELLA RATTA
(b.1993) Gianmaria Della Ratta, is an Italian designer based in the Netherlands. He dedicates himself to the realisation of personal projects and collaboration with various companies, where he is often called to develop innovative projects in close consultation with the various research and development departments. Abundance of expression and conceptual complexity coexist at the same time in his objects, amalgamated by the constant search for new production processes that often result in modern and innovative technologies used to overcome the current limitations of creation.
Often starting from the origins of an object, he deconstructs it, to deepen its meaning, challenging the perception of material and immaterial and questioning the very sense of functionality. Through careful, cunning and uncommon digital manipulation, he manages to achieve completely unexpected and absolutely new results that not only distinguish his style but also give objects an attractive and never seen before aesthetic. The unusual use of latest generation software are often part of his creation process that he pushes to the limit through choices mainly related to his intuition, which lead him to solutions not necessarily related to functional, aesthetic or market needs, but that result in a constant experimental and surprising approach.
