AJORI. The suggestive curves of a garlic

“We observed, peeled and cut several bulbs of purple garlic. We were impressed by the elegance of its lines defining each piece, the peculiar texture of its skin, and diversity of forms. In front of our eyes appeared a set of containers arranged on a tray, around a stem or handle. Considering the diversity of options in design that we wanted to propose, this one showed with total clarity, the functionality that we were looking for: a cruet in a form of garlic.”
