Concept

Among architectural components, doors and windows play a very special role. Both are part of the walls that separate the indoors from the outdoors. At the same time, they give continuity to the faces of the walls. Door and window handles have a fundamental role, too, performing two functions. The first is to guarantee easy opening and closing – this regards our sense of touch. The second is to clearly signal their existence. For over 100 years, Olivari has been producing infinite handles of excellent quality responding to these requirements. All along, they have avoided being overwhelmed by excesses in formal expression. When we conceived the Fin series, we were aware of the Olivari principles and sought to create a new handle worthy of becoming part of its range. To describe the design concept of this handle, we could say it is “delicately angular”, a term that also expresses the intents of our architectural design. We attempted to lucidly express flexibility (one that reassures the human soul) and originality (one that opens the road to new times). It honours us that Fin has become a member of the wonderful family of Olivari products.
