french-canadian studio milan, founded by tony gaudette in 2011, has established a reputable name in the world of culinary-design. its small inventory of goods relies on high-quality woods, leather, and now, smell. ‘simona’, designed in collaboration with samuel accoceberry, is 555 grams of intrigue and opulence.

‘simona’ utilizes an atypical form and pure ebony color to first surprise, then invite users to interact. reaching beyond mere utility, the soap commands attention — precisely what milan hoped to accomplish. of course, accoceberry’s design meets needs as well. accents of bergamot, ginger, myrrh, and pepper combine into a unique smell capable of eliminating the kitchen’s most potent aromas.

    It’s incorrect punctuation to hyphenate culinary design. It ought to just look wrong to you.
