A handle that is an Archimedean lever, a prehensile device with a vivid visual presence.‎ In a world that obsessively pursues technological innovation, this product belongs to the family of “slowly evolving” objects, whose present form is not so different from its predecessors of 300 years ago.‎ A smartphone is already obsolete after one year of life; but while we await the advent of immaterial thermal and visual diaphragms, we still use traditional handles without any trouble at all.‎ Many common objects like cups, forks, bottles, nails, rubber bands – things that might be depicted, together with bees and elephants, in an old primary school textbook – form the beloved backdrop of our everyday life.‎ Their virtue is to be useful, silent tools that do not set out to send messages, to promise global salvation: they are perceived in a more discreet “physiognomic” way.‎ Their relative silence of form bears the inflection of physical mimicry: they communicate through what was once known as “bearing” or “carriage.‎ ” The Drop wants to belong to this world of “silent service,” of useful, humble objects happy to be part of the backdrop of our existence.‎ The Drop is a timid, chubby maidservant, with her hair tied back in a bun and a lace apron, who opens doors with a smile while our brains are busy coping with the thousands of daily snares that lie in wait in the media jungle.‎
