Three line of brass handles for door and window. The design draws the pure contours of Italian Baroque, First Empire and Louis XVI in a contemporary view.

The Master of Styles Enrico Cassina, in collaboration with the architects MAADE, develops the decorative elements and, from an entirely contemporary perspective, drew out the pure signs, the essence of a style in a new collections of handles.

From the Baroque period comes Baricò, which embodies the sinuous essence, the wide movement, an emptiness that opens up, that expands in the act of grasping the handle.

Louis XVI becomes Soberal, which inherits the symmetry and rigour, a simplicity that also lies in the fullness of the plate, while the handle remains circular, symmetrically round, pendular.

The First Empire permeates through Filobi with decisiveness and allusion, a form whose plate conveys a sense of royalty, of a crown, but also in the handle that resembles a sceptre, a commanding object.
