This is why they decided to make room for two young associates, entrusting them with the task of designing two new handles for the Fusital collection, which has always involved internationally-known architects and designers, since it was created back in 1976.
A way to rightly acknowledge the efforts of those who work at the company on a daily basis with dedication and humbleness, working side by side with major designers and who, behind the scenes, manage to solve technical problems and deal with adaptations, adjustments in dimension, proportion and weights to make each and every Fusital handle a timeless design jewel.
MERCURIO is a tribute to happiness, genius, restlessly creative energy, characteristics of the people at Valli&Valli/ASSA ABLOY Italia, ready to blow their first eighty candles in 2014 with plenty of enthusiasm.
The chrysalis that is about to become a butterfly… Liquid metal forced into an imaginary and see-through case that does not give in to stillness and stasis.
Mercurio also embodies the history of Valli&Valli and of its prestigious projects. A lively, energetic and dynamic soul that was just waiting to be re-discovered.
By designing Mercurio, Ezio Salvi, a young talent and resource at Valli&Valli, created a handle with sinuous and soft lines, with well-defined and ergonomic shapes and strong visual impact for those who love modern design.
Available in the following finishes: Cromsatin and chrome, and a mix of both.
