Collaborating with the Italian manufacturer Valli & Valli, this luxury line of door levers and knobs brings thoughtful design to functional hardware FUSITAL H359. The concept is a single, bold stroke whose subtle surface reflects light in complex ways, making an elegant aesthetic statement with an ergonomic grip.
The design utilizes computer modeling software typically employed by the automotive industry to generate and analyze the form. The information from the surface curvature has been used to describe and generate the object’s form through its highlights and reflections.
