A fluid shape makes it looking different if seen from different points of view, generating a soft play of light and shadows: from above, as it inevitably appears in everyday use, the handle shows itself as a twisted bar, and it is only on gripping it that the softness of the surfaces beneath is revealed. What at first sight is perceived as a simple visual element becomes also a pleasant tactile surprise in the instant we use it. [nazione] => italy ) 1

hands on door handles

leda by matteo zetti from italy

designer's own words:

Leda is a brass handle, matt chrome finished. A fluid shape makes it looking different if seen from different points of view, generating a soft play of light and shadows: from above, as it inevitably appears in everyday use, the handle shows itself as a twisted bar, and it is only on gripping it that the softness of the surfaces beneath is revealed. What at first sight is perceived as a simple visual element becomes also a pleasant tactile surprise in the instant we use it.
