Grater with cheese cellar in thermoplastic resin and steel mirror polished.
Graves's personal formal language combines ideas taken from European tradition, Art Deco, American Pop Art and memories of pre-Colombian cultures. The American designer also has an ability to bewitch the general public like few other designers in the Alessi catalogue.
The Parmenide grater, designed by Alejandro Ruiz, combines two domestic kitchen products in one and is both a cheese grater and a cheese cellar. This delightful little container is incredibly handy when you want to serve cheese at the table and its innovative combination of two separate functions has helped earn it a place at the New York Museum of Modern Art.

Since its establishment in 1921, Alessi has gradually evolved, becoming a leading exponent of the “Factories of Italian design”, capable of mediating between the most interesting expressions of international creativity and the public, society and the market. Its mission is to translate these creative expressions into real objects capable of fulfilling dreams and satisfying the public’s desires.
