Dnd Unveils Five Architectural Handles
The Italian company Dnd has realised the research project “Handling Architecture”, namely five door handles designed by acclaimed architecture firms Stefano Boeri Architetti, Alfonso Femia, Maurizio Varratta, Cino Zucchi and 967arch.
DUE By Stefano Boeri Architetti
Door handles that totally reinvents the relationship with the plate, generating an authentically new product. The design of the handle makes it approach the “archetype” in which the two traditional functional parts of the object – the grip and the attachment plate – are transformed into a pair of slender, perfect equal parallelepipeds: a solution of essential sculptural force.
(IN)FINITO By Alfonso Femia
A project that entirely revises the relationship between the door and handle, granting the latter an unprecedented and previously un-imagined physical space: a two-dimensional line arrives from the edges of the door and “draws” the handle before continuing on its way, towards the other side, upward, in the opposite direction. The relationship between the surface of a door and its thickness thus becomes similar to a movement drawn on that surface.
LEVANTE By Maurizio Varratta
A perfectly balanced handle, slim, subtle, unexpectedly comfortable in the hand. A terse, simple form adds character to an object whose design is identical to its function: a pragmatic project, easy to adapt to any type of door, becoming a natural part of it.
DROP By Cino Zucchi
A soft, surprising, affable object in which brass presents itself in its most admirable guise.
BLEND By 967Arch
Refined reasoning on an archetype, using simple forms – the cylinder and the rectangle – and the connection between two cylindrical shapes. The character comes from a detail: the attachment plate with its unusual proportions generates the overall design of a new handle. A reinterpretation of self contained forms.
