About the Designer
Richard Sapper Germany (1932 - )
Richard Sapper (born 1932 in Munich) is a German industrial designer. He received a Compasso d'Oro industrial design award in 1959. Sapper partnered with Italian designer Marco Zanuso and were hired in 1959 as consultants to Brionvega, an Italian company trying to produce stylish electronics that would compete with products manufactured in Japan and Germany. They designed a series of radios and televisions that became enduring icons of an aesthetic known as techno-functionalism. One of their more notable designs was the rounded, compact and portable Doney 14 (1962), the first television to feature completely transistorized construction. Using the aesthetic of sculptural minimalism, the pair designed the compact folding Grillo telephone for Siemens and Italtel in 1965. The Grillo was one of the first telephones to put the dial and the earpiece on the same unit, and today is a featured display at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

Whenever this grater is brought out at the dinner table, it elicits a chorus of remarks from our supper guests. It's a substantial piece, both in design and sheer size. Creates a fluffy snow of parmesan with ease. Only reason for no 5 stars, is that it takes a bit of effort to clean, and you need to have a spot big enough to store it.
Love this but purchased for decoration

I purchased this for a decoration in my kitchen. I have not tried it for it's intention and I don't plan on it as it looks like it'd be difficult to clean.
